Go IMMEDIATELY to the ER. It would be preferable if you called an ambulance if this is available in your area. This is anaphylaxis and is potentially life threatening.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
