Who is at risk of anaphylaxis?
Anyone with an allergy to any substance is at risk of anaphylaxis.
While anaphylactic reactions remain relatively rare, we currently have no way of knowing if a person who previously has experienced only mild or moderate symptoms when exposed to a trigger, will at some time in the future develop more severe or life-threatening symptoms.
Despite what you may have heard, allergies cannot be cured, and children may not ‘grow out of them’. But you can reduce the risks associated with severe allergies by avoiding your triggers and being prepared.
To find out if you or your child is at risk of anaphylaxis complete this simple survey and take the summary to your doctor.
