Transcript

An EpiPen is a very useful item. This is generally what an EpiPen looks like, it's an auto-injector, someone can inject him or herself in the thigh with it, or you can inject someone else with it if they're having a reaction. It's very easy to use. It can be, in fact, life-saving. It only lasts for a short period of time though. So anyone who uses an EpiPen needs to go to the hospital to get further treatment. Once you're treated in the hospital, you'll likely leave with a set of prescriptions to include prescriptions for EpiPens to carry with you, and I suggest that you see your doctor or an allergist who may be able to assess and see what specific you're allergic to and how to manage that in the future.
