benadryl vs. epi-pen
I am quite new to pa (my 17 mo old son has it).
Last week we were issued an epi-pen. The allergist did not mention using benadryl, but I notice a lot of people seem to use benadryl when a reaction is first suspected.
My question is: when do you use benadryl and when do use the epi-pen?
For those who have administered benadryl: do you use adult benadryl or children's benadryl and how much do you give?
