Welcome to the site! You might read the post on administering an epi shot. There's a lot of other information in there that might be helpful for you, not just epi info. I have a daughter who has a strong reaction to stings, but she's not allergic. I got epis just in case, but after I read the post, I decided a bottle of benadryl would be a lot easier, cheaper and safer. When the epis expire, I'll replace them with a bottle of benadryl.
