AllerMates® Announces Online Allergy & Asthma Community for Parents and Professionals

Forum Links Users to Invaluable Resources for Childhood Allergies and other Health Issues

AllerMates, a unique brand of allergy, asthma and health awareness products for kids that include alert wristbands and other alert products, along with EpiPen®, Auvi-Q™ and asthma inhaler carrying cases, has launched an online community at, just in time for May’s Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month.

Registration for this unique Community offers separate distinct options for Parents & Caregivers or allergy related professionals like doctors, nurses, nutritionists and those providing goods and services to the community. Users can sign up at and exchange experiences, seek advice, post recipes, get breaking news and alerts, make friends, share photos and videos, use the “ask the doctor platform” and create a strong support network of allies among others dealing with allergies and asthma. The community is easy to join and to use. It features the friendly images of AllerMates characters that have made the products so popular among children and their parents.

“The creation of an AllerMates online community was a natural extension of the benefits that AllerMates have brought to families with food allergies and other health ailments,” says AllerMates Founder and CEO Iris Shamus.  “Linking up with other kids and their families dealing with the ever-present challenges of allergies and asthma, especially during May’s Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month, gives people an important resource and let’s them know they are not alone.  Thousands of other families are coping with the same issues and the community helps them learn and share.  Kids with allergies and asthma can participate with their parents too and will find fun and friendly tools, resources, games and education at this site’s ‘Kids Club,’ says Iris. 

Among the many free features and resources on the site are: a physician and professional directory, restaurant cards, action plans, downloadable schools signs and lots of children’s activities.  AllerMates offers something for anyone who cares for an allergic or asthmatic child and invites all to register and share.

About AllerMates:

AllerMates is a subsidiary of Awearables LLC, a privately held company based in Nanuet NY. The Company and products were created by Founder and CEO Iris Shamus, who sought education and alert products for her son after leaning he had food allergies and asthma.  When she wasn’t able to find materials that helped him learn about his allergies, she created the characters, now known as AllerMates. Those characters then became products that alerted others to his allergy, while making him feel special.  AllerMates products are available at CVS, Kmart, Walgreens and other national and regional chains as well as at, where parents can also find a wealth of educational information, resources like action plans and restaurant cards and an online community dedicated to parents of children with health issues.
