How Would A Doctor Treat Himself If He Had Anaphylaxis
EpiPen: He would find out the cause and avoid it. He would carry an Epipen Epinephrine autoinjector at all times against accidental exposure. If he thinks he is having an anaphylactic reaction he would immediately take Epipen and immediately seek emergency medical care. Anyone else would be wise to do the same. ...Read more

After being exposed to a substance such as bee sting venom, the person's immune system becomes sensitized to it. When the person is exposed to that allergen again, an allergic reaction may occur. Anaphylaxis happens quickly after the exposure, is severe, and ...Read more
What do doctors mean when they say something is rare or rarely occurs? Such as anaphylaxis or cardiac arrest in a 28 yr old
Unusual.: A rare occurrence is something which is not the usual; it is uncommon. This does not really address the question of what percent chance will be the event. Some things, for example are considered rare, occurring at a rate of one out of one hundred times; another rare event might only occur once in 1000 times. As one can see, "rare" is a relative term; it's not precise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm on propranolol 20 mg 3 x daily for SVT. I was prescribed EpiPen by doctor incase of anaphylaxis. I read propranolol is a contradiction???
Complex: although Epipen might not work from the first dose, it is still the first drug of choice for anaphylaxis even if you are on propranolol, you can still use it and repeat the dose every 5 minutes x 3 till better, question: why would you anaphylax in the first place? please talk to your doctor about considering an alternative for propranolol, glucagon is an alternate drug for Epipen ,off-label though ...Read more

Try fexofeniine 180mg daily, but if recalcitrant or other body organs are affected (lung-cough, or gastrointestinal-abd cramping) consult your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How do I know if I have anaphylaxis? My body is itching me all over. How do I know it's not scabies? These rashes get crazy at night time. I've been having it for 3 weeks. Did laundry 2x. And my lips have gotten swollen twice. I went to a doctor and she s
Not anaphylaxis: Anaphylaxis refers to acute allergic reaction with loss of blood pressure, passing out, tight airway, sudden difficulty breathing. The cause is usually known. You have something quite different. You need a diagnosis-----scabies or whatever----and your Dr should call a dermatologist for you to be seen on an urgent basis. ...Read more
I had respiratory failure (cyanosis) during general anaesthetic.The doctor thinks it was anaphylaxis. I am now diagnosed with both COPD stage 2 and asthma.Were these conditions the more likely cause?
COPD is deadly: Anaphylaxis can happen with any drug, but acute postoperative respiratory failure is more commonly caused by underlying lung disease. Stopping smoking several weeks before surgery decreases risk for complications. Of course, the best thing anyone can do for better health is to stop smoking, especially those with lung disease. Smoking with lung disease is like rubbing dirt into a wound. Stop ASAP. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
