Please translate Medic Alerts into Arabic.

Medical translation filter: I'm off to the Middle East and Europe. Small concern - I have a collection of allergies that would need to be known in an emergency, especially as I'll be in a few remote places. What do I put on a medic alert band in Arabic countries? (Help with notes for wallet card also appreciated!)

I'm allergic to latex and sulphur preservatives, shell fish and sulphur drugs. Latex and adhesives are probably the critical ones here - no band-aids for me, I'm afraid.
I'm also gluten, dairy, soy, and salicylite intolerant (so need to have on wallet card, but not as urgent).
Hivemind, please help me find the text that will keep me safe on my travels!
(FWIW: Countries visited include Jordan, Yemen, Egypt, Israel. Also Germany, Switzerland.)
