The following happened today while playing epidemic
After taking one card, the second card drawn resulted in an epidemic card.
So we tried to resolve it but the card we took from underneath the pile resulted in another epidemic card.

How do you resolve this?

We resolved it by taking another card from underneath the pile, crowding this city with 3 cubes, then drew another card from underneath the pile, crowded that also with 3 cubes,

mixed the whole discard pile (3 city cards and 2 epidemic cards), and put that on top of the draw pile.

It resulted of course in another epidemic card dranw by the next player.
Though we won the game, I still wonder we played this by the correct ruling.

Any help welcomed.

Epidemic cards are placed in the Player Deck (blue red white cards). You should be taking a card from underneath the pile of the Infection Deck (green black cards). The Infection Deck should not contain any epidemic cards.

Epidemics are removed from the game once they are played, they are not discarded into the Infection Discard Pile or the Player Discard Pile.

Hope this helps.

you seem to be drawing from the wrong pile. epidemic cards are in the player cards pile (white border). when you draw one you increase the infection rate, draw a card from the bottom of the black bordered deck, put 3 cubes in that city, then reshuffle the black bordered deck discard and put it back on top. the player card discards are never shuffled or put back into the deck.

Thanks for pointing this out.

If you look at the reverse side of the epidemic card, you may get a hint to which deck it goes in... devil
