About us

StickyJ Medical ID and sister company Thoughtful Impressions have been family owned and operated for more than 21 years. The company is led by CEO Lori Torman, who has an eye for great quality and classic styles. In the early days of medical id bracelets (we're talking 1960's), medical alert bracelets were pretty boring -- basically engraved metal tags with curb link chains. The same styles were offered for children, just smaller (no wonder kids didn't want to wear them). And, by the end of the 20th century things hadn't improved that much. Lori was among the first to recognize that medical id's could be fashion conscious, and in 2005 launched designs in leather as well as stainless, and introduced polyester kids medical id bracelets that had cute designs. The sport strap line of child medical id's she introduced nearly 20 years ago is still the most popular line of children's medical jewelry on the market today. And, we now produce more than 100 different styles of medical alert bracelets and necklaces for men and women. Our engraved bracelets are individually custom engraved by our team of master engravers, ship within three (M-F) business days from the date you order, and all products come with a 90 warranty against manufacturing defects. Please come and shop with us today. It will be our pleasure to serve you.

Penicillin Allergy and Why You Need a Medical Alert Bracelet

Penicillin Allergy and Why You Need a Medical Alert Bracelet

2nd Jun 2022

Penicillin Allergic Reaction

“no pcn”

Such a small amount of engraving, for such a big impact.

Penicillin allergies can have a wide range of reactions for those who have them. While some can be relatively mild, they can all be circumvented by avoiding penicillin and its related antibiotics. This is something that seems as though it should be pretty easy to do, right? What if you become ill or injured to the extent you are unable to speak for yourself? Will the first responders or doctors know about your allergy?

They will if you wear a med alert bracelet that gives them this information. Penicillin allergies are a sign that your immune system has been overstimulated by penicillin or a related antibiotic. Antibiotics are usually given to treat bacterial infections like strep throat and ear infections. People who have an allergy to penicillin may have symptoms after taking the medication, including a rash, itchy skin, breaking out in hives, wheezing, or even the swelling of the lips, tongue or face.

While most of these are uncomfortable, they aren’t typically life threatening. However, an anaphylactic reaction could possibly cause death. It occurs immediately after taking the drug, and, in people with severe allergies to penicillin, it can cause breathing difficulties, wheezing, a drop in blood pressure and swelling of the throat or tongue. Some people become dizzy or lose consciousness. Their pulse can become either rapid or weak. Obviously, these latter symptoms could be quite serious, especially if you are alone when they occur, or unconscious to begin with, and unable to tell anyone of your allergy. A med alert bracelet, worn every day, removes the stress of worrying how you will handle this potential critical situation.
Penicillin Allergy Alert Bracelet

Engraving is available for you to make your bracelet one of a kind. If you have a penicillin allergy we suggest engraving on your medical alert bracelet: Your Name NO PCN 999.333.7777 <— that being an emergency contact number! If you have additional information you would like engraved such as additional allergies or medical conditions, engrave these on the back or if the piece doesn’t allow it, on the free medical card we offer with every order!
