    Nut allergy bracelet help needed.
    Ok im am stumped.

    I found a while back a site that allows you to register if your child has a nut allergy who you then pay a yearly fee to. They give your child then a bracelet or pendent to wear with info on it to contact the company who have your details on file, this allowing the medical services quick info on your condition.

    Now for the life of me i can no longer find this site and i am hoping someone here knows of it or has at least heard about it.

    I am in UK but the site was worldwide and no matter where you were the info was available.

    Any help on this appreciated my son has a bad nut allergy and is going to Paris without us with the school and really need to find a way if he is seperated and anything happens people know what his condition is.

    See if you can get the medallion written in French as well as English.

    How old is your son? Ask his doctor to prescribe self-injectable epinephrine in case there's an emergency.

    Thats the one Trust we were looking for.

    Thanks for all the all the help appreciated now the we can have a bit of peace of mind when he is away. We don't exactly trust his school with his condition they have known for years about it but when he started his new class in august they handed out snicker bars for treats in the class just luck the class knew not to take them as even if he is in room with nuts his allergy can kick off.

    You can actually get a bracelet through American Medical ID's UK site, www.universalmedicalid.com/co_unk .

    When we worked with them on their back-to-school campaign a couple months ago, they offered this type of ID jewelry for kids with nut and other allergies.

    You might want to check them out before your son goes on his school trip.
