    • A.

      Orange Juice

      Soy

      Eggs

    • D.

      Wheat

    Correct Answer
    A. Orange Juice
    Explanation
    Orange juice is not a common cause for allergic reactions because it does not contain the proteins that typically trigger allergies. Allergies are usually caused by proteins found in certain foods, such as soy, eggs, and wheat. However, orange juice is made from oranges, which do not contain the same allergenic proteins as these other foods. Therefore, it is less likely to cause allergic reactions compared to soy, eggs, and wheat.

    Explanation
    Food allergies can be treated through a combination of methods. Medication can be used to manage symptoms and provide relief during an allergic reaction. Avoiding contact with or ingestion of foods that contain or may contain the allergen is another important aspect of treatment. This involves careful reading of food labels and being cautious when dining out. Additionally, medical supervision may be necessary to gradually expose the person with the allergy to the substance they are allergic to. This is known as immunotherapy and can help desensitize the individual to the allergen over time. Therefore, all of the above options are correct methods for treating food allergies.

Therefore, the statement that an anaphylactic reaction is a mild reaction is incorrect.

    In the event that a student needs to have an Epi-Pen or Twin-Ject administered, the best course of action is to call 911 and explain the medical emergency. It is important to remain with the student and send for additional assistance. This ensures that the student receives immediate medical attention and that help is on the way. Calling the parent to pick up the student or sending the student home or to the school nurse may result in a delay in receiving proper medical care. Calling the principal for assistance may not be the most effective response in a medical emergency.
