Allergic Reaction Response Guide


It's Like Having Your Allergy Mom and Emergency Action Plan in Your Pocket 24:7


A sudden onset of allergic reaction symptoms can be frightening, particularly because of uncertainty — you don't know how the reaction will evolve, all the symptoms you'll experience or how fast it will progress. Will it evolve into anaphylaxis?**


And when you're afraid, you stop thinking...clearly.


The Allergy Force food allergy app is like having your 'allergy mom' in your pocket who knows what to do in an allergic emergency. It offers a feature that helps you quickly access your emergency action plan, and even if you didn't input one, it still guides you through how to handle your allergic reaction based on the symptoms you are experiencing


This feature is called the Allergic Reaction Response Guide and it's 'FREE FOREVER' because it is critical for everyone to take prompt and correct action when an allergic reaction strikes.


You are prompted to customize this feature with your own doctor's instructions (aka Emergency Action Plan) for handling allergic reactions as soon as you download the app. If you choose to skip that step during app set-up, you can do it later when it's more convenient.


The important thing is that you DO IT because you just never know when you'll have an allergen encounter and need to manage a reaction.


Here's how it works...

Step-by-Step Overview


1. On all main landing pages in the app, you will see the 'caduceus' icon — ⚕️ — at the bottom of the page next to the '+' sign. Look for it.


IMPORTANT! Familiarize yourself with this feature and how it works as soon as you download the app.

2. Tap the 'caduceus' icon and you will land on the Allergic Reaction Response Guide.

  1. Don't miss the 'Instructions.' They're short and sweet. Tap 'Instructions' to reveal them. Tap again to close them.

  2. Don't forget to add your 'Doctor's Comments' (aka Emergency Action Plan) for handling severe & mild reactions. Tap to reveal the text boxes for your inputs.

  3. Don't forget to tap 'Save' to save all your inputs.

The second screen shows the instructions for using the feature after a user taps instructions to reveal them. The third screen shows where the user can input their doctor's instructions for managing both severe and mild allergic reactions. The Save button at the bottom of the screen must be tapped to save all Doctor's Comments inputs. Next, to Check Symptoms the user must tap the Check Symptoms button below the Save button on the screen.

3. Tap the 'Check Symptoms' button at the bottom to determine how to handle the symptoms you're experiencing.

  1. First you will land on the 'Severe Symptoms' screen. Check off all symptoms you are experiencing in the checkboxes provided.

  2. Tap 'Next' for action steps to follow.

  3. You'll see your own 'Doctor's Comments' in red (as long as you input them) after the list of the 'Severe Symptoms' you checked off.

  4. Even if you did not add your own Doctor's Comments, there are still action steps to guide you.

  5. Take Action. Don't hesitate. Seconds count!

The second screen lists the action steps for treating an allergic reaction characterized by severe symptoms. If a user is not experiencing any severe symptoms they are directed to tap next to proceed to the next screen.

If you do not have any symptoms listed on the 'Severe Symptoms' screen, tap 'Next' to go to the 'Mild Symptoms' screen.


4. When you land on the 'Mild Symptoms' screen you will see 'Mild Symptoms' with checkboxes.

  1. Check off all the 'Mild Symptoms' that apply in the checkboxes provided.

  2. Tap 'Next' for action steps to consider.

  3. You'll see your own 'Doctor's Comments' in red (as long as you input them) after the list of the 'Mild Symptoms' you checked off.

  4. Even if you did not add your own Doctor's Comments, there are still action steps to guide you.

  5. Take Action. Don't hesitate. Seconds count!

IMPORTANT: If you check off just ONE 'Mild Symptom' on this screen, you will follow the protocol for handling 'Mild Symptoms.' If you check off TWO OR MORE mild symptoms, or if you are unsure if your symptoms are 'Mild' or 'Severe,' you will be taken to the protocol for handling 'Severe Symptoms.'

** What is an anaphylactic reaction, or anaphylaxis?


Anaphylaxis occurs when your body launches an all out immune response to something you're allergic to — such as a food, an insect sting, latex or a medication. The response can take seconds to minutes to build momentum after exposure, and sometimes it could take even longer. Symptoms can include:

  • Skin: Hives and itching and flushed or pale skin

  • Heart: Low blood pressure (hypotension), a weak and rapid pulse, dizziness or fainting, shock

  • Lungs & Airways: Shortness of breath, wheezing, repetitive coughing, chest tightness or chest pain

  • Mouth: Obstructive swelling of the tongue and/or lips

  • Stomach: Nausea, stomach pain, vomiting or diarrhea

  • Brain: Feeling of impending doom, anxiety, headache

Always follow your anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan (aka 'Emergency Action Plan')

to the letter, if you think you're having an allergic reaction.
