Tips

Having an allergic reaction for the first time can be really scary. Especially if you have no idea why you are having
one. Here are few tips for things that you should in order to prevent yourself from have an allergic reaction:
1) Get Allergy Tested
If you are concerned about having an allergy, you should get allergy tested. There are a couple of different main allergies that people tend to have.
2) Always Be Aware
If you get allergy tested and you are negative for everything, still be aware that there might be a chance that you can still have an allergy to what you were tested on. It happened to me. I got tested for tree nuts and peanuts, and the allergy test said that I had outgrown my allergy (I was allergic before). Later, I ate a walnut and immediately had a reaction to it. I had to be rushed to the hospital. Never let your guard down, because you never really know if you will be allergic to something or not.
3) Always carry an Epi-pen
Epi-pens are a type of shot that can stop an allergic reaction. If you have an allergy, I recommend that you carry an Epi-pen with you wherever you go.
