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.

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.”
