    Do you mean medical alert bracelets? To let folks know that a person has a medical condition?

    There are several brands/stores — just to name a few …

    If you mean just the simple band to promote awareness, if you're managing a medical condition like asthma or a food allergy, then I would suggest you go with a medical alert bracelet from a company like the ones listed above (there are others like them as well — you'd just have to google them) which will list medications and doctor's and emergency contact names. 

    Do you manage asthma for you or your kids?

    Hmmm … there is THIS online store: . It has awareness bracelets for all sorts of health conditions. I've never used it, so I can't vouch for it, but you could check it out.

    Allermates has great ones for kids- my grandson has been using these for 5 years

    Welcome Yanser! I've heard great things about Allermates and I know a lot of families with food allergies who use them.

    Hi @Myboys3,

    We will have asthma (and other) bracelets ready in time for May (Awareness Month).

    We'll keep you posted!

    Thank you

    Hi Yanser,

    Welcome to AAFA's asthma  support forum.  I'm glad to hear that the Allermates bracelets have been working for your grandson.  Do you and he both have asthma?

  • Yanser

    Grandson has peanut, tree nut, egg allergies so far no asthma-which doctor is surprised he doesn't but the bracelets are great, he likes them a lot better than the metal ones

    Yanser  - My oldest is allergic to peanuts, but doesn't have asthma either.  Her allergist checks and asks about it at her checkups every year, but no asthma.  By the way, AAFA has a sister organization that also has a communty -  - that you may find helpful.

    Yanser, … so glad your grandson doesn't have asthma to add to the food allergies. My DD has food allergies and asthma, and it can get tricky sometimes. 

    Do you manage asthma yourself? 

  • Yanser

    No I don't- but grandson has the seasonal and environmental as well.  My biggest concern is that "most" people lack the education and understanding when it comes to food allergies especially, I probably would as well if it weren't for my grandson. Some think he's a "picky eater " because he reads labels etc. can Never be too cautious 

  • Jen

    Yanser – That is great that your grandson reads labels.  How old is he?

  • K8sMom2002

    That's terrific that he can take responsibility for reading labels! for you and the rest of your family for helping him learn this very important skill. And yeah, it is worrisome that more people don't understand the importance of reading labels.
