With a return to school days just around the corner,
back-to-school sales have many parents and their children
in a flurry of preparation. For allergy-sufferers and their
parents, however, these preparations include making sure
kids stay healthy and safe while in school. These preparations can be daunting, but there is help available.
Whether dealing with food allergies or hay fever, and
whether your children are entering kindergarten or their
first year of college, the following items can help give
you the peace of mind you crave when your
children with allergies
are not under your direct care and supervision.
- Allergy Armor bedding gives kids an
allergy-free, good night's sleep. As many allergy sufferers
know, waking up during the night from allergy attacks means
groggy days. And groggy children don't perform their best
in school. Children who don't get adequate sleep have
trouble concentrating, have difficulty with reason and
memory, and even experience a temporary drop in IQ levels. We offer five fabrics of Allergy Armor
pillow covers and
mattress covers to protect
your child's bedding.
Allergy bedding can
give your allergic children the rest they need to perform at their maximum
potential. Pillow covers,
mattress covers, and other bedding made from our
exclusive Allergy Armor fabric keep dust mites and other
allergens from entering the breathing zone during sleep.
Allergy bedding is the first and most essential
step in any allergen avoidance regimen. Many can testify of
the allergy-free, restful nights - and the well-rested and
productive days that follow them - brought on with the use
of allergy bedding.
Dorm room bedding packages provide an allergy-free
bed away from home. Your off-to-college child needs
bedding whether he has allergies or not. Our dust mite
dorm bedding package provides all the bedding essentials
with the added bonus of allergy relief. The package includes one
hypoallergenic pillow with an Allergy Armor Cotton Blend
pillow cover, one Allergy Armor Cotton Blend mattress
cover, and one cozy Vellux blanket that will stand up to
the rigorous use of dorm life.
Food allergy T-shirts and cards keep caretakers
informed. When your food allergic child is under the
supervision of others, it's crucial that their food allergy
is at the forefront of their caretakers' minds especially
when food is served. Food allergy T-shirts are particularly
useful when adults who don't usually care for your children
are in charge, such as substitute teachers or other parents
during a field trip, for instance.
Food allergy cards are best suited for older and more
responsible children. Excellent for use in restaurants,
they detail the particular allergy (cards are available for
peanut, tree nuts, shellfish, milk/dairy, wheat/gluten,
soy, and egg allergies), include information about
cross-contamination, and list potential ingredients that
may include the allergen. Food allergy cards are an
excellent preventative item for food allergic college-bound
kids to bring with them as they learn to live on their
Personal air purifiers give college students a pure
air zone. Personal air purifiers like the
Roomaid Air Purifier, Honeywell 17000,
Alen T100 Desktop
Air Purifier are essential for allergic college students
who need pure, allergy-free air in their dorm rooms.
Portable, unobtrusive, yet powerful, these air purifying
units ensure a steady flow of allergen-free air as students
study or take a break.
Protect EpiPens to be prepared for anaphylaxis. Even
with the best of thinking ahead and every thought of
avoiding allergens, exposure to foods that trigger
anaphylaxis can still happen. Make sure EpiPens are well
protected and easily accessible with the
Injector Case and Ana-Tote Auto Injector Case with optional
adjustable belt. We hope these never need to be used, but
having them handy has saved many lives.
Minimizing allergy attacks through allergy bedding, personal
air purifiers, and food allergy
preparedness can let youngsters focus on their schoolwork.
With meticulous allergen avoidance and environmental
control, even highly allergic individuals can live lives
relatively uninterrupted by allergic episodes. For your
young children, college-age kids, and all in between, try to make
this school year an allergen free experience.
