Preparedness necessary to prevent child anaphylaxis during holiday events

Quote:
The holidays are meant to be merry, not congested. But for many children with severe allergies, the festivities can result in just that — or worse — due to improper planning.

According to a study conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Mylan Specialty, 55 percent of children with life-threatening allergies reported experiencing anaphylaxis during a winter holiday gathering; that number rose to 70 percent for families living in urban locations. What’s more, approximately 90 percent of the over 300 families surveyed said their child/children would be attending a holiday event this year.
