    Correct Answer
    C. It can be cured by medication

    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the options listed, milk, eggs, and fish, are known major food allergens. This means that they are commonly known to cause allergic reactions in individuals who are allergic to them.

It is important for individuals with food allergies to be aware of these allergens and to avoid consuming them to prevent allergic reactions.

    Explanation
    The correct order for the EpiPen directions is 2, 1, 4, 5, 3. First, the gray activation cap needs to be pulled off. Then, the black tip of the EpiPen should be held near the outer thigh. Next, the EpiPen should be swung and jabbed firmly into the outer thigh. After that, it should be held in place for 10 seconds. Finally, the EpiPen unit should be removed and the injection area should be massaged for 10 seconds.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Mild signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction are…

    • A.

      Blurry vision

    • B.

      Flushed skin or rash

    • C.

      Tingling or itchy sensation in the mouth

    • D.

      Both B & C

    Correct Answer
    B. Flushed skin or rash
    Explanation
    Mild signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction can include flushed skin or a rash. This is typically a result of the body's immune system reacting to an allergen, causing blood vessels in the skin to dilate and resulting in redness or a rash. These symptoms may be accompanied by other mild signs such as tingling or itching sensation in the mouth. Therefore, the correct answer is "Flushed skin or rash."

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Those with known severe allergic reactions to a food allergen should…

    • A.

      Have a prescribed medication called an Epi-pen with them at all times.

    • B.

      Gradually increase exposure to known food allergen until the allergies disappear.

    • C.

      Not have to worry if only mild signs & symptoms appear.

    Correct Answer
    A. Have a prescribed medication called an Epi-pen with them at all times.
    Explanation
    Individuals with known severe allergic reactions to a food allergen should have an Epi-pen with them at all times because severe allergic reactions can lead to anaphylaxis, a life-threatening condition that requires immediate medical attention. An Epi-pen contains epinephrine, which can help to reverse the symptoms of anaphylaxis and buy time until emergency medical help arrives. Having an Epi-pen readily available can potentially save their life in case of an allergic reaction.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    If an individual with a severe food allergy begins to experience symptoms

    • A.

      Initiate treatment immediately.

    • B.

      Call an ambulance.

    • C.

      Wait until severe symptoms appear.

    • D.

      Both A and B.

    Correct Answer
    D. Both A and B.
    Explanation
    If an individual with a severe food allergy begins to experience symptoms, it is important to initiate treatment immediately. This could involve administering an epinephrine auto-injector if available. Calling an ambulance is also recommended as the symptoms can quickly worsen and become life-threatening. Therefore, both options A and B are correct as they emphasize the urgency of taking immediate action to address the allergic reaction.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    An allergic reaction to a food can be triggered by the first time an individual is exposed to the food allergen.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An allergic reaction to a food can be triggered by the first time an individual is exposed to the food allergen. This is because the immune system of some individuals may recognize certain proteins in the food as harmful and mount an allergic response, even if it is the first time they are exposed to it. The immune system produces antibodies called immunoglobulin E (IgE) in response to the allergen, leading to the release of histamine and other chemicals that cause allergy symptoms. Therefore, it is possible for someone to have an allergic reaction to a food the first time they consume it.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If an individual is allergic to the food he or she is exposed to then he or she will show signs and symptoms immediately within seconds.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because an allergic reaction to food can take varying amounts of time to occur. While some individuals may experience immediate symptoms within seconds, others may have a delayed reaction that can occur hours or even days after exposure to the allergen. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that all allergic reactions to food will show signs and symptoms immediately.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Even mild signs & symptoms of a reaction to a food allergy can lead to a severe allergic reaction.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Even mild signs and symptoms of a food allergy can lead to a severe allergic reaction because food allergies can escalate quickly. What may start as a mild reaction, such as an itchy rash or stomach discomfort, can progress rapidly to more severe symptoms like difficulty breathing, swelling of the throat, and anaphylaxis. It is important to take any signs of a food allergy seriously and seek medical attention to prevent a potentially life-threatening reaction.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The purpose of having an action plan is to help guide food allergy management under differing situations, especially in the event of a severe food allergy reaction.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Having an action plan is important in managing food allergies because it provides guidance on how to handle different situations, particularly during severe allergic reactions. An action plan outlines specific steps to take in case of an emergency, such as administering medication or seeking medical help. It helps ensure a timely and appropriate response, increasing the chances of effectively managing the allergy and preventing complications. Therefore, the statement is true.
