Home >> Stevens Johnson Syndrome allergy alert bracelet
In response to an approach by Croydon teenager, Marian Adejokun, who was left covered in blisters from head to toe within hours of using a small dose of Optrex to relieve an itchy eye, ICE ID have produced a special allergy alert bracelet to help promote the awareness of Stevens Johnson Syndrome.
Marian almost died from the disorder. After 3 weeks in intensive care she now faces a long path to recovery. Her aim was to raise awareness of the disorder which affects around two people per million and is more common among women, and together we have designed an allergy alert bracelet in her favourite colour with a special stainless steel tag engraved with Stevens Johnson Syndrome on the front and will have personalised information on the rear including products that the wearer is allergic to.
What is Stevens Johnson Syndrome
Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS) is a severe adverse allergic reaction to a medication. Named after Albert Mason Stevens and Frank Chambliss Johnson, American pediatricians who jointly published a description of the allergic disorder in 1922.
All our medical alert tags are stainless steel and your personal information is laser engraved. This makes them virtually indestructible and overcomes the problems associated with hand written tags such as fading and illegibility.
Each TAG can include up to 6 lines of information. Recommendations include NAME, TOWN/POST CODE, NHS NUMBER, 2 EMERGENCY NUMBERS, MEDICAL INSURANCE NUMBER, BLOOD GROUP AND ANY KNOWN ALLERGIES OR CONDITIONS.
If your child or loved one is diabetic, or suffers from peanut allergy, autism or epilepsy, then wearing some form of medical alert id is vitally important. Our range of allergy id bracelets, speak for you when you can't, giving the care-givers all the vital information they need to give you the best possible care in the fastest possible time.
It could save your life!!!
