The sudden beginning and unpredictable course characterize acute allergy. These factors can be fatal for patient and must be treated immediately. Allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, acute urticaria, angioedema and anaphylaxis refer to diseases based on acute allergy. The most dangerous diseases, characterized by fatal conditions, are generalised urticaria, angioedema and anaphylaxis. Knowledge of first aid principles is the most important factor of effective treatment because quickness of allergy progression requires prompt decisions. Use of the whole complex of modern therapeutic possibilities is the most important and durable. Modern methods of first aid for acute allergy, based on recommendations from foreign and domestic publications, are given in the article.
