Anaphylactic shock 4 years, 6 months ago #373

Anaphylactic shock (also called anaphylaxis) is a rapid and severe allergic reaction, and one of the scariest health emergencies a parent can face. It starts when the immune system mistakenly responds to a harmless substance as if it were a serious threat. This triggers the release of histamine and other chemicals that cause a number of symptoms — some of them life-threatening.
The symptoms in a baby include:
- Swelling of the skin, lips, throat, tongue, or face
- Wheezing or severe breathing problems
- Rapid pulse or irregular heartbeat
- Hives
- Loss of consciousness
- Vomiting
- Diarrhea
- Extremely pale skin and sweating, skin redness, or blue skin color
