...can hold two Epi Pens, and two little bottles (Benedryl and Orapred)? My pharmacist gave me two small empty bottles for my emergency kit that hold small amounts of each.

My daughter is turning 3 so the diaper bag is no longer needed. I want a tote to hook onto the outside of my handbag. She won't really need to wear a belt until next year when she starts preschool.

I looked and saw one with an inhaler pouch but don't know if that is large enough to fit two small bottles. Maybe an insulated bottle tote that closes or zippers at the top would work if there are no Epi Pen bags that will work.

we struggle with carrying orapred because it is supposed to be kept refridgerated.....Our son is undergoing allergy shots right now and is supposed to carry it in his emergency kit, so we finally got the pills and are keeping those in his carry bag, but keep the liquid in the school nurses office fridge and at home in our own fridge. He is 6 years old and able to swallow pills, although it isn't ideal, but better than having nothing I thought. hope you can find a solution! Jen

Look at FAAN's website, [url="http://www.foodallergy.org"]www.foodallergy.org[/url] . They have a large red bag that I think would meet your purposes. It's designed to clip onto things.

I found a very nice camera case that zips shut. It can hold 2 epi's & 2 med bottles
It can clip on or it can be used with the srap (alone)
You can apply a badge or pin to the front identifing it as an allergy kit.
I found that Meijer had tons of colors in camera cases all under $12. (I like the brighter colors, easier to find)

I love those ideas!! Another option is a very inexpensive Avon bag I found only on eBay (there are many for sale) that is called an insulated cosmetic bag. It is meant to keep your makeup cool when going to the beach. There is a smaller one (6.5x3) and a slightly larger one (9X5). I looked into buying a 2 3/8 spring clip at berkeleypoint.com which would allow me to easily attach it to any purse strap, belthook, etc. I love the camera case idea too...never would have thought of that!
