How do I know if my child is in anaphylactic shock?

It’s important to remember that each child may experience symptoms differently. However, the most common symptoms of anaphylaxis are:

  • Tightness or swelling of the throat
  • Severe itching of the skin
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Stomach pain
  • Heart failure
  • Irregular heart beats
  • Lowered blood pressure
Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
