I’ve been told that for DD to take part in a ski school, they require her to have her epipen on her in a thermal bag.

I need to get one from a shop (not online as delivery to Perth is never overnight), and it needs to be small (as she is only 5). Any ideas where to get one from?

A chemist may have one.

But other than that even an insulated lunch box would work.

We use one of these, but I haven’t taken it to the snow or anything. https://shop.coles.c...t-squeeze-pouch
Fits two pens that aren’t in the cardboard box and the small bottle of Zyrtec that you drop.

Everything I found was so big! I’m going to ring some places tomorrow, see if I can find anything.

They would be perfect, I just don’t have time for delivery.

the Medactive website has a list of affiliated pharmacies.  one in Subiaco and one in South Perth.  plus a few more in the suburbs.  give them a call.  they should even be open still today.

I have one I don't need (DS only had an anaphylaxis reaction to immunotherapy). How soon do you need it? It only fits one pen

Thanks to PP I found the exact one I wanted at a convenient local pharmacy. EB is the best!
