In brief: Carry an EpiPen (epinephrine)
If you have had anaphylaxis from a food or stinging insect, you should carry an Epinephrine auto injector from now on.
You should also undergo a complete evaluation by a board certified allergist to help determine what you may be allergic to and need to avoid.

In brief: A support system
If you have anaphylaxis you are at risk for life-threatening allergic episodes that can strike suddenly & without warning.
You may need assistance finding, retrieving & administering Epinephrine (epipen), calling 911, and getting to urgent medical help. Having concerned & trained family, friends & coworkers who recognize when you are in trouble & can help you is vital for your health & survival.

Tip: don't leave an Epi pen in a car glove box, the summer heat will destroy the medication.

Quite right, Dr. Vaughn. Also don't hold you thumb over the end of the device. Otherwise you might inject your thumb.
