Epipen alternatives

Common Questions and Answers about Epipen alternatives

epipen

I feel for you. I have a severe allergy to Bleach and require an epipen after being in close proximity to the fumes. This allergy began a few years ago and has progressively gotten worse, I can't even be near or in a pool that has recently been chlorinated. I empathize with you. I would like to find cleaning alternatives as well.
I have anaphylactic reactions to known and unknown foods. My doc told me that since I carry an epipen for an unexpected reaction that I should be aware that if I have to use the eippen that there is a big chance that I could get a massive stroke. But since Parnate was the only thing that worked for me, we decided to take that chance. I too used to be hypotensive. Yes I had a healthy beautiful baby girl and she is doing fine.
There are alternatives out there, but Dr's are too quick to place the steroid 'band-aid' on everything so they don't have to work to figure out a better method. Once again this is just my opinion, I am not in the medicla field, I just am a steroid dependant asthmatic who has experienced first hand the complications prednisone causes.
I have yet to discover a brand of mouthwash that does not contain mint in some form or other - or else the cinnamon kind makes first burns then makes my mouth go numb. Ditto for breath mint alternatives. (I can't even handle a Tic-Tac in my mouth for more than a few seconds, much less chew on it or swallow it.) Face clensers with menthol stung, and also left my face feeling greasy. But not in the haven't washed my face often enough way.
