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
Antiseptic solution or wipes such as betadine
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)
Cough drops or cough syrup
Including phone numbers of your doctor or the nearest emergency clinic in your medicine kit is also very important.
