Thanks for the example, I was needing to type up one for parents that my DS spends the night with. This was very helpful.

Thanx for the example too. There is also a download from the FAAN which I found to be helpful, here is the site address [url="http://www.foodallergy.org/actionplan.pdf"]http://www.foodallergy.org/actionplan.pdf[/url]
We defined a mild reaction as just minimal hives, with no progression of symptoms. At the recent FAAN conference Dr Sicherer gave a talk on anaphylaxis and we discussed numerous scenarios and how we would handle them ie give benadryl or go right to the epi. Past history of reactions and your comfort level seemed to be what determined whether or not epi was given. We also spoke to our allergist.

Just a comment - your plan was quite complete.
I was a little confused by the term "vial" in conjunction with the Epi. That sort of suggests to me (if I didn't know anything about the Epi) that I needed to fill it with something prior to giving the shot, because I think of a vial as a test tube thing.
Maybe just me.
