What is Anaphylaxis?

Anaphylaxis is a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction triggered by allergies to certain medications, foods, and bug bites. Symptoms of anaphylaxis include difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue, and throat; hives or rash; diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting; and cardiac symptoms including a drop in blood pressure, heart attack, or cardiac arrest.

Anaphylaxis requires emergency attention. Epinephrine pens like EpiPen, Twinject, or Auvi-Q are the most common at-home treatment. Other drugs used include corticosteroid and antihistamine injections.
