There’s no disputing the fact that our climates have changed, our natural environmental balance completely thrown out of whack and our air is nothing like it used to be, in its polluted state! The combination of all these factors, and more, have effectively resulted in, among other issues, an increase in allergies among children in South Africa.
Allergies are caused by our own immune systems when they overreact to substances that may be harmless to others but are critical for those with allergies to certain substances (allergens), such as food allergies, penicillin allergies, peanut allergies and bee sting toxins, along with other insect bites or stings.
The immune system, when exposed to these allergens, responds mistakenly to what would otherwise be no threat, as if it were a serious one, which is when various signs of allergic reaction start manifesting.
The worst of these is when a child or adult goes into anaphylactic shock, which is an emergency medical situation that could be life-threatening if not treated immediately. In the case of highly allergic children, wearing an I.C.E. (In Case of Emergency) allergy bracelet, band or necklace should be worn at all times.
Antihistamine tablets and EpiPen’s become a normal part of life for any parent of a highly allergic child; watching your child vomiting, swelling and fighting for breath is beyond terrifying for any parent, however, as long as the parent is with the child, they know what to do.
It’s when our kids go out to day care, school, other members of the family or left in the care of a child-minder, that it becomes essential for him or her to wear a kid’s allergy bracelet, supplied by ICE-TAGS South Africa, a team passionate about sharing their belief that being prepared is life-saving.
