This goes without saying! Especially if you are planning to take a trip up north, or going anywhere for hiking, trekking, surfing, cliff diving or swimming, minor cuts and bruises are part of the deal. Always bring along a generous amount of bandages or plasters to tend to your wounds or bruises, as professional medical help might not be readily available in these areas.
It’s bad enough already that you have a wound, why risk getting it infected and making things even worse? Always carry some antiseptic wipes with you, to clean your wounds and bruises properly.
No, it’s not because you will have to pluck your eyebrows on the go. Tweezers can come in handy by helping you remove any sort of stones, dirt or splinters which may have come in contact with your wound without the risk of infecting it. Be sure to clean your tweezers with an antiseptic wipe before using them.
These creams are good for applying on wounds, cuts and bruises. They don’t just help in preventing bacterial infections but help you heal your wound quicker.
Pain relief medication
You don’t want to miss out on an amazing day of sightseeing just because you had a headache. Be sure to put some pain relief medicines in your first aid kit. Panadol, Disprin, or any other pain relief medicine you usually take will do the trick! Also take some medicine which gives you relief from fever, as traveling to a place with a different temperature can often upset your body temperature.
