Pharmacy Finder for an Allergic Reaction

Sometimes, despite your best efforts to avoid your allergens, you make a misstep or you trust too much and you need to find a pharmacy. Fast.

In addition to the many other emergency management features the Allergy Force food allergy app offers to help you safely navigate allergic reactions (like 911 calling, like emergency contact notification with a map of your location, like a reaction response guide with your own doctor's instructions), the app also offers a Pharmacy Finder.

The Pharmacy Finder will help you find the nearest open pharmacy. You can call before you go, as well as get directions from your current location.
