What can be done at home to treat anaphylaxis?

If your doctor has identified that you are at risk of anaphylaxis, they will prescribe you injectable adrenaline, or adrenaline shots, for you to carry with you at all times so that you can be treated immediately if you have an anaphylactic reaction. After using injectable adrenaline, it is still important to seek urgent medical attention, as further treatment may be needed.
