First Aid Treatment for Anaphylaxis in English and other Languages


Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction and potentially life threatening.

It should always be treated as a medical emergency, requiring immediate treatment.

Most cases of anaphylaxis occur after a person with a severe allergy is exposed to the allergen they are allergic to (usually a food, insect or medication).

First Aid information is available in English, Arabic, Chinese, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Macedonian, Spanish, Turkish and Vietnamese.
