I cannot believe anyone with a severe allergy does not carry an epipen with her at all times. While her mother was religious in checking her food, the poor girl did not have the appropriate medication to deal with this....terrible as it was easily avoided. Adrenaline (epinephrine) cannot help you if you do not have it with you. Keep the adrenaline (epinephrine) in a clearly marked robust pouch or case so that it is easy to keep with you. Protect it from light and from high temperatures. In hot climates, keep the container out of direct sunlight and overheated locations such as parked cars. For example in a bag of beach things you can keep it wrapped in several layers of clothing, but still rapidly retrievable by tying one end of a cord to the container and the other end to the handle of the beach bag.
