Re: Crazy, overly paranoid question about EpiPen

So it wouldn't be the first time there was an exposure. Allergies are a reaction to something you have been exposed to first. That is why if your kid has a minor reaction to something you need to be really aware because that could just be the precursor to something major.

That said - I always keep (for myself) Benedryl tablets. My friend who is an ER nurse told me if you ever have a bad allergic reaction chew up a couple tablets - it will get into your system really fast.

I am kind of allergy phobic. My sister fed my DS peanut butter the first couple times because I was afraid.

I have had a couple allergic reactions to things and still deal with PTSD from the experiences. I hope my kids don't have the same issues - allergy or mental health.
