Some people are allergic to certain foods, medicines, insects and latex. When they come into contact with these things they develop symptoms, such as hives and shortness of breath. This is known as an allergic reaction. Things that cause an allergic reaction are called allergens.

Nearly one in 50 Americans are at risk for anaphylaxis. Download our FREE PDF handout to learn more.
