I have a milk, egg, almond nut, hazelnut and peanut allergy. Is there anything I need? Like a kit or something?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Anaphylaxis plan/kit

Peanut and nut allergies can be serious leading to anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction).
It's important to have 1) self injectable epinephrine (like EpiPen or Auvi-Q); 2) written anaphylaxis action plan from your doctor; 3). wear a medical ID bracelet; 4) antihistamines for very mild reactions; 5) chef card-to be used at restaurants. All of these can be kept in a kit so as not to be misplaced
