Portable Benadryl for allergies

(Google Images)
I've found some great things over the years for allergies and allergic reactions. When the kids were little, I would use the Benadryl Perfect Measure if they were having problems while we were traveling. This was especially helpful when Kitty was taking horseback riding lessons, and would have asthma attacks afterwards. We tried to get home as fast as we could to get her in the shower, but would usually end up using one of the pre-measured doses for her. They're better than carrying around a bottle and medication dispenser and dripping sticky medicine all over.

Son #2 carries the Benadryl Strips along with his Epi Pen, since he is allergic to tree nuts. In fact, we add that to his Self Medication Administration form at the beginning of every school year. I sign the form, along with his doctor, which makes it legal for him to carry it with him in school. The strips look like a little piece of turquoise tape, you just place it on your tongue and let it dissolve. It works fast and isn't messy.

I love the way technology and medicine evolve, it makes my life so much easier. If you or your kids have food allergies, you may want to consider carrying the strips or the perfect measure doses. It's one of those things that you may not need that often (if ever) but you will be glad you have it with you.
