About Blue to the Sky

Blue to the Sky is a blog that focuses on awareness, tips & tricks, and advice for anyone with allergies.

What’s ‘Blue to the Sky’?

Ever wonder how doctors teach kids with an anaphylactic allergy how to use an epinephrine injector? They use the phrase; Blue to the sky, orange to the thigh.

In other words, point the cap of an injector up, and stick the other end of the injector (orange) into your leg. Glamorous right?

To me, Blue to the Sky means you’re prepared and have the information you need to protect yourself. So, I hope this blog can bring the same amount of comfort to anyone living with allergies.
