What happens when you use an Epi-pen?

You might have allergies yourself, or have a child who does. If so, you might have a lot of questions about using an Epi-Pen that aren’t covered in the standard information leaflet:

  • Will it hurt?
  • Will it bleed?
  • Does it take much force to use?
  • Will it work like they say it does?
  • And finally, what happens if I use it by accident?

Well thanks to one brave (?) person, the answers to all of these questions, especially the last one, can be found right here: http://marketingmama.com/epipen

It’s a good read, and well worth sharing with you!
