  • 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.

  • 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 own.

  • Personal air purifiers give college students a pure air zone. Personal air purifiers like the Roomaid Air Purifier, Honeywell 17000, or the 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 Protectube Auto 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.
