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
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
