In brief: EpiPen (epinephrine)

He would find out the cause and avoid it.
He would carry an Epipen (epinephrine) Epinephrine autoinjector at all times against accidental exposure. If he thinks he is having an anaphylactic reaction he would immediately take Epipen (epinephrine) and immediately seek emergency medical care. Anyone else would be wise to do the same.
