Five things every first aid kit should have

Release Date - Jan/16/2014

  1. Antiseptic wash
    Apply first to the injury, because minor injuries can become as infectious as your child’s laughter. Follow it up with some antibiotic ointment as a second barrier to infection.
  2. Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen
    To fight fever and pain, these should always be nearby.
  3. Bandages of all sizes
    Your loved ones are one-of-a-kind, and their cuts and scrapes are no different. Make sure you have a variety of strip, pad, triangular and dot bandages – as well as rolls of gauze – to apply the proper pressure.
  4. Sterile scissors
    For cutting bandages (remember what Mom always says – don’t run with them)
  5. Instant cold compress
    This will provide immediate comfort to aches and sprains, and let you save those frozen peas for dinner.
