The allergy card is a medical document, which is intended to contain, in a concise form, the information relevant to the allergy sufferer to the further treating medical persons.
The minimum requirements are:
1. Excellent allergen or substance, in the case of medicaments, in particular the international INN Nonproprietary-Name.
2. Date / year of reaction
3. Indication of clinical manifestations
4. Date / year of medical diagnosis
5. All diagnostic methods that confirm the diagnosis
6. If possible, details about tolerated medication and potential cross-reactivity
Such an allergy card should always be issued by the treating or diagnosing doctor. Entries from third parties, in particular the patient himself, are not useful. The often uncritical listing of alleged allergens without indication of symptoms and without assessment of relevance may satisfy the requirements of an "allergic person" but is not helpful for the patient as well as for the treating physicians.
It has verified as useful to place a copy of the allergy passport in the patient's dossier, so that an identical duplicate can be issued in the case of any loss of the document.
