Coronavirus Pandemic May Change How Patients With Food Allergies Seek Care After A Severe Reaction

Forbes (6/5/2020) reported the coronavirus pandemic may change how patients with food allergies seek care following a severe reaction “as coronavirus fears make them skittish about seeking emergency medical care.” Dr. Thomas Casale, chief medical advisor for operations at the nonprofit Food Allergy Research & Education, said patients should talk with their physicians about creating a modified plan that may allow them to manage symptoms from home after administering epinephrine. Forbes adds that the American Academy of Pediatrics offers a “customizable document that can walk people through what to do in case of a mild to severe allergic reaction.”

This is a good article to review the steps at home you can take in case of a moderate to severe allergic reaction if you are concerned about going to an Urgent Care or ER due to COVID-19 hesitancy.
