• Anaphylaxis is a severe life threatening form of allergic reaction.
  • It usually occurs after exposure to an allergen ( usually to foods, medicines or insects).
  • It affects the entire body resulting in difficult / noisy breathing, swelling of tongue, tightness of throat, difficulty in talking, wheeze or persistent cough, loss of consciousness /collapse and in children a pale/floppy child.
  • It should be treated as medical emergency.


  • Effective management of anaphylaxis saves lives, therefore identifying the cause of anaphylaxis is important.
  • To identify the triggers involves a comprehensive consult and clinical examination followed by the interpretation of skin and or blood testing.
  • Education on avoidance of triggers is important.
  • Having an emergency plan is essential.
  • Regular follow up by a Clinical Allergist and Immunologist is recommended.
