What’s in Your First Aid Kit?

Ah, summer! The season of sun and fun – and sunburns, strings, and scrapped knees!

Be prepared for minor injuries and illnesses this season by making sure you have a well-stocked first aid kit in your home and in your car. Here’s what you should include:

  • Wound dressings, including elastic wraps, gauze, cloth tape, and adhesive bandages.
  • Home health equipment, like a first aid manual, tweezers, a thermometer, sterile cotton balls and swabs, scissors, and disposable instant cold packs.
  • Medicines, including antibiotic ointment, aspirin, acetaminophen, sterile eyewash, calamine lotion, and hydrocortisone cream. We also recommend you purchase items for sun recovery like soothing Aloe gels.

If you or a member of your family need a lifesaving medication, for instance an epipen for allergies, an inhaler, or insulin, make sure to always travel with the necessary equipment. And keep a spare handy!

If you have any questions about what other kind of materials you should carry with you – ask your primary care physician.
