Life-threatening Allergic Reactions Podcast

Some individuals have reactions to certain foods, bee or wasp stings, and certain medications. Most have mild to moderate reactions (rash, wheezing, tingling, diarrhea, etc.) to the offending food long before the allergy becomes severe. But in a few, the first time they eat the particular food or get bitten or inhale they become sensitized and the second time they eat even a miniscule amount of that food, an explosive reaction occurs. Dr. Jon Gray, a board certified emergency medicine physician on staff at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital, discusses life-threatening allergic reactions, and when to go to the emergency room.

If you are having an allergic reaction, visit Memorial’s Emergency Department. If it is life-threatening, call 911.
