Control & Prevent Allergic Reactions

Tottori Allergy & Asthma - Control & Prevent Allergic Reactions

Take Your Prescribed Medicine
Symptoms can be managed and avoided by taking your doctor prescribed medication.
Keep Your Epinephrine Auto-Injectors With You
If you are at the risk of anaphylaxis, Epinephrine is the only treatment for a severe allergic reaction. It is only available through a prescription from your doctor and can save a life when in crisis.
Keep An Allergy Journal
Track everything! What you eat, symptom times and what seems to help you. This can help your doctor find what causes or worsens your symptoms.
Wear A Medical Alert Bracelet
This is crucial when you have severe allergies. If you have a reaction and you are unable to communicate, this device can save a life.
Know What To Do
Have a written emergency plan. You can download a template from the web. It tells you and others what to do in case you have allergic symptoms or a severe allergic reaction.
