Help. I am new to the boards but have already read several very helpful tidbits. We had the skin prick testing today on my 3.5 year old son. He is a 4++ for peanuts. We were told to get a medical ID bracelet for him. Does anyone have a good suggestion on finding one for children and one they will wear? Thanks for any information

pI found a good web site that sells allergy watch products. These are not to replace a real medic alert bracelet but I thought it would be something that the children may enjoy wearing. Also the buttons can be worn on coats or long sleeves whereas medic alert bracelets may be hidden. The web site address is [url="http://www.allergywatch99.com."]www.allergywatch99.com.[/url]/p

pI'd stick with MedicAlert. I feel better knowing that an emergency room can call them and get numbers for my son's pediatrician, allergist, my husband and me. They will also provide a brief medical history. When he is away from me, this makes me feel a little more secure./p

Wow. I am new to this. My son's appointment with the allergist is not until Wed. morning at 8:30. I have not ordered him an id bracelet yet since I am not sure what other allergies he may have. I did not know that they could get all of that information from them. Thanks for the info./p

pThe other nice thing about the medic alert braclet is that it does stay on! the smallest it comes in is 5 inches. We had to have some links taken out. His states "allergic to peanuts and peanut biproducts, carrys epi-pen jr" he has tried to chew it off and its still on! it took him a week or so to get used to it./p

pMy daughter would not wear the braclet. I bought her a necklace and have had no problembr /
with it. She wears it everday to kindergarten, she chews on it but it still stands the test of time. It NEVER comes off.br /
Our school system in New brunswick is becoming very educated to the Peanut Free Zones. It just takes the parents to speak up and enlighten them to as what can happen if they get in contact with peanut./p
