Ice-Tags put the spotlight on alcohol allergies!
The things most people think about when anyone mentions an allergy bracelet is allergies to nuts, insect stings, allergies to medication or allergens in food, very few realise that while it may be rare, there is also the possibility of an allergy to alcohol!
The most unfortunate thing about allergies is that you only know you are allergic by the time it becomes an emergency and your immune system reacts to a substance as if it is as harmful as a deadly virus. In terms of being allergic to alcohol it can be pretty complicated, from a severe allergic reaction to alcohol, which means you have to avoid alcohol completely, to a mild reaction to certain ingredients in one alcoholic beverage which doesn’t happen when you drink other alcohol.
Ingredients in alcohol which could cause an allergic reaction include barley, hops, yeast, rye, wheat, gluten, histamines, which are often found in red wine, and sulphites, often found in white wine. Just looking at this list should give you a good idea that if you are allergic to any of these ingredients in food, you are more than likely going to have an allergic reaction to alcohol containing these same ingredients!
Ice-Tags has made an art of allergy bracelets designed to save lives while still looking fashionable and being comfortable, creating a range of medical alert bracelets which give you more than sufficient space to add all the information any first responder can use in order to save your life.
Anaphylactic shock occurs quickly and often sets off a chain of life-threatening reactions which could shut down your major bodily functions, which means that without the life-saving information contained in an Ice-Tags allergy bracelet, first responders may be severely handicapped by unknown allergic reactions.
Considering how rare alcohol allergies are, it is worth doing your research to find out how the ingredients in alcohol will affect you and to be fully prepared to allow your Ice-Tags allergy bracelet to speak for you when you are unable to, giving first responders the opportunity of saving your life without causing further harm.
Please take any allergy seriously and join the Ice-Tags family in their commitment to saving lives! Visit the Ice-Tags website, choose your allergy bracelet and know that you are fully prepared for all emergencies!
