Abstract

Allergic emergencies are increasing. The principal aetiology in children is food allergy. Epinephrine is the first treatment for anaphylaxis. It is the subject of the recent review. However, prescribing epinephrine in all food allergies is discussed. It is of no use to prescribe epinephrine withoutaccurate diagnosis, an educational programme, information and follow-up. The prescription of epinephrine is associated with parental distress and problems at school and in the canteen. Finally, educational programmes are more effective than epinephrine prescription. Before prescribing epinephrine, we have to define the situations where there is a risk of anaphylaxis. We have to improve knowledge of epinephrine use: dose, site of injection, route, expiration dates and availability when necessary. Because most allergic reactions occur at restaurants or outside the home, why prescribe epinephrine if the auto-injector stays at home or in the refrigerator? We have to improve the treatment of anaphylaxis with use of epinephrine in first aid before prescribing epinephrine in all food allergies that are not identical.
