Allergies. . .

(2 Posts)

My 5yo dd has an allergy to ibuprofen, which causes her to get a rash, and swell up. She has only had the allergy once, and we took her to a&e and they gave her antihistamines and kept her in overnight before sending her home.
My question is: should I be getting her one of those bracelets which detail allergies, so that if she's in an accident without me (Heaven forbid), the paramedics, or whoever, know not to give her ibuprofen?
Any help appreciated!

I don't think paramedics give ibuprofen but if she went into A&E they might. Its never a bad idea to have an alert braclet.
