Anyone involved in the care of your child should be aware of their allergy. This information helps them manage and protect the children in their care. They need to know what foods to avoid-symptoms that occur with exposure-and how to react in an emergency. They should have epinephrine on hand and know how to inject it in case your child has a serious reaction. Also-be sure to keep your emergency contact information updated so they know how to reach you should the need arise.
