Food Allergy Medical Treatment
In a severe reaction, the first priority is to protect the airway (breathing) and blood pressure.
The health care professional will make sure that the airway is open and that the person is getting enough oxygen.
Blood pressure will be checked frequently.
The person may need to be admitted to the hospital for further monitoring and treatment.
