What causes allergic reactions?

Allergy symptoms occur when the immune system detects a substance (allergen) that is harmless to most of the population but triggers an overreaction in people who are sensitive. Symptoms can affect airways, nasal and sinus passages skin as well as digestive tract; mild allergies may just cause discomfort while more severe ones result in life-threatening situations requiring emergency intervention.

What does epinephrine do?

People with severe allergic reactions will need to use epinephrine (adrenaline) as the first step in stopping and reversing their life-threatening symptoms. The medicine can help open up airways for those who are having a hard time breathing, which is why it's so important that people have access to this prescription drug without delay when needed. However you should only use these auto injectors if someone has an allergy attack - over-the counter antihistamines aren't nearly as effective at treating what could be serious medical complications like shock from anaphylaxis.
