Asthma Inhaler Carriers and Cases for Kids

As you know, so many kids with food allergies also have eczema and asthma. Managing these conditions seems to be a constant learning process. My son's having an asthma flare-up and this caused me to google asthma inhaler cases and carriers. I see there are just as many choices for asthma inhaler cases as there are for epipen carriers! There aren't that many options for carrying both Epi-Pens and asthma inhalers; they just are bulky and there's no getting around it. I thought I would share some of my findings here. I'm going to need to purchase at least one, so if anyone has a favorite asthma inhaler carrier they'd like to recommend, I'd appreciate it.

Active Inhaler - Puffer Sports Pouch $14.95. can be worn as leg band, arm band or on a waist belt 

Allergy Apparel Allergy Apparel offers stylish carriers for epinephrine and asthma inhalers. Asthma/first aid pouches sell for $8-$20, depending on the style, and Jumbo Epi-Pen carriers which accommodate 2 Epi-pens and an asthma inhaler are $50.
