Simlple is best: Life threatening allergies are always a concern while traveling. If you meet up with someone while traveling let them know about your allergies. Something simple such as "i have a severe allergy to xyz which can be frightening to me and you. I always carry a an easy to use Epipen (epinephrine) in my........ May i take a moment to show you how it works?". Then show them how simple it is to use.
