Action Plan for FPIES
Food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) is a delayed gut allergic reaction, which presents with repetitive, profuse vomiting that may not start for a few hours after a triggering food(s) is eaten. Some individuals with FPIES may develop diarrhoea, lethargy, become pale, floppy and/or feel cold.
Adrenaline autoinjectors and antihistamines do not play a role in the management of FPIES.
