@yani-0 It should always be treated as a medical emergency. One should give adrenaline infection as soon as possible. You should call an ambulance whether adrenaline has been given or not. If after 5 to 10 minutes the person still feels unwell, a second injection should be given. This should be given in the opposite thigh. The person should lie flat, with their legs raised on a chair or a low table. If they are having difficulty breathing, they should sit up to make breathing easier.
