Here's a list of symptoms that will help you ascertain if your child is having an anaphylactic shock:
What to do if your or someone else's child has an anaphylactic shock1.Call 999 for an ambulance immediately and tell them that the child has had anaphylactic shock
2.Remove any trigger if possible – for example, carefully remove any wasp or bee sting stuck in the skin
3.Lie the child flat – unless they're unconscious, pregnant or having breathing difficulties
4.They should have an adrenaline auto-injector so inject them ideally in the outside of the thigh or top of the bum – but make sure you know how to use it correctly first
5.Give them another injection after five to 15 minutes if the symptoms don't improve and a second auto-injector is available
