Severe Allergic Reaction (Anaphylactic Shock) (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Strictly avoid contact with the substance (allergen) that was the trigger.
People who are likely to be re-exposed to (or are unable to avoid) an allergen that has caused them a severe anaphylactic reaction in the past should see an allergist for desensitization. Skin testing may be required to help identify the allergen.
