Allergy Communication

YES you may want to tell the swimming instructor or pool staff that you child has an nut allergy. Life Guard Paint has one paint that has walnut shells mixed in.

YES you may want to tell your knitting buddy your allergic to milk, Swallow Knit makes knitting needles from casein (milk).

YES you may want to tell you golf buddy your allergic to corn with golf tees made from corn on the market.

YES you may want to tell your mover that your egg allergic Gorilla Box uses packing material made of egg shells.

YES you doctor AND pharmacist should know about your nut allergy with prescriptions with nuts in them.

Communication about your (or your child's) allergy should be going on with everyone, be aware of food and non food items that contain your allergen.

Advair disks, Claritin pills, Zyrtec pills, and Allegra pills all have milk ingredients in them too.

Thank you so much for this post about non food items that contain allergens. It's so scary to read, but vital as my son has a severe allergy to Casein.
