Anaphylaxis is a medical emergency. First, call 911.

At the hospital, your child's doctor will probably treat him with an injection of epinephrine, which will help stop the severe effects caused by the allergen.

As a follow up, his physician may instruct you on the use of an emergency allergy kit that contains epinephrine to have near your child in case of future episodes.

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. ”
