Epinephrine or death?
Most allergic reactions are irritating but will go away with medication or on their own. There is one however that is called Anaphylaxis. It is a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. It can threaten your life within seconds or minutes of exposure to an allergen such as peanuts or bee stings. Tree nuts, such as walnuts, cashew nuts, almonds, brazil nuts and hazelnuts, fish and shellfish, milk, eggs, soy and wheat can also cause this reaction.
Unlike other allergies, Anaphylaxis is life threatening because it causes our immune system to release a flood of chemicals that can result in our bodies going into shock, a condition characterized by a sudden drop in blood pressure and the airways becoming narrow which causes breathing to be blocked. The warning signs include a rapid, weak pulse, a skin rash, nausea and vomiting. Certain foods, some medications, insect venom and latex can trigger this reaction.
A person experiencing an Anaphylaxis shock needs to be injected with epinephrine immediately followed by an immediate visit to the emergency room. If there is no epinephrine available immediately, emergency treatment is required there and then. Otherwise, the person will die.
The symptoms of Anaphylaxis will occur within minutes of exposure to the allergen and in some cases, it can occur half an hour or longer after exposure. In rare cases, the condition may be delayed for hours.
If you have the following, you need to rush to hospital immediately:
- Reactions of the skin such as hives, itching, flushed or pale skin
- Hypotension or low blood pressure
- Constriction of the airways and a swollen tongue or throat that results in wheezing and breathing trouble
- A weak and rapid pulse
- Vomiting, nausea or diarrhea
- Fainting or dizziness
Remember Anaphylaxis, if not treated right away can be fatal. Don’t delay going to the hospital.

WHAT IS A COOL MIST HUMIDIFIER?

WHAT CAUSES LOW HUMIDITY IN YOUR SPACE?
As temperatures get lower during the colder winter season, humidity levels naturally drop. This is because cold air can’t retain as much moisture as warm air. Primarily, low indoor humidity is created when cold air, which carries a far lesser amount of moisture than warm air, enters the home and is heated, therefore lowering the atmosphere’s overall relative humidity. Low humidity can also occur in arid climates during summer as a result of excessive air conditioning, which removes moisture from the air as it operates. But should we even worry about this? Let’s find out what happens due to it?
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A ROOM HAS LOW HUMIDITY?

When the air becomes drier than that, it raises the risk of several types of health issues. dry skin irritated eyes dryness in the throat or airways allergies frequent coughs bloody noses sinus headaches cracked lips Aside from these health issues, wood and plants also get affected by dry air. If your plants are turning brown even after your intense care. Then don’t blame yourself for it. It might be happening due to low humidity in your space. But does having a humidifier even help the above health issues?
HOW DOES A COLD MIST HUMIDIFIER HELP?
Think about the last time it rained. Do you remember how the air felt after the rain stopped? You may have noticed a “crisp” feeling in the air. A cool-mist humidifier has a similar effect to the temperature of your room. Humidifiers add moisture to the air, which can benefit people with respiratory symptoms or dry skin during the summer months especially if you live in a dry, desert climate. This can also be a benefit during colder months when indoor heating makes the air hot and dry.
