-- Question: Do I need to carry epinephrine and Benadryl with me all the time if I have food allergy? What if I am just really careful?
Answer: I'd say yes. Because most of the allergic reactions that occur to foods occur in those who know that they're allergic and they're doing their best to avoid it, but the exposure is hidden in a food. Despite everyone's best effort, there's an accidental ingestion, so you have to be prepared. Some people say, "No epi, no eating."
