It is highly recommended that you have a well-stocked and a well-organized medicine box to avoid that “panic” moment on emergency cases.

Scissors (for cutting gauze and bandages)

Cotton balls and cotton-tipped swabs

Sterile adhesive tape

Adhesive bandages (assorted sizes)

Sterile gauze pads

Petroleum jelly

Antiseptic solution or wipes such as betadine

Antibiotic ointment

Elastic sterile bandages (to wrap knee, wrist, ankle and elbow injuries)

Pain relievers like ibuprofen, acetaminophen, or aspirin

Ointment or lotion for itching

Tweezers (for removing splinters)

Thermometer

Burn creams

Cough drops or cough syrup

Including phone numbers of your doctor or the nearest emergency clinic in your medicine kit is also very important.
