This is a “communal” website, which means that the content was authored by several contributing organizations.
Individualized instructions for risk reduction strategies and treatment of a reaction should be provided in writing by patients’ physicians. Parents of allergic children should discuss individualized plans with their children’s school staff and caregivers.
