With warmer weather, many varieties of stinging and biting critters are around that could cause significant harm to children who are allergic to them. If you do not have an EpiPen(epinephrine injection) or know how to use it, obtain a prescription for one and proper advice on its use from your child’s health care provider. There has been some controversy over the rising costs of EpiPen. Recently a generic EpiPen was introduced to the market which┬áreduced the costs for prescriptions, but you should speak with your health care provider to find the best option.
Remember this is just another way to be prepared to protect the health of those you love!
