Do you travel with a first aid kit?

Do you travel with a first aid kit?

Even on the shortest getaway there is the slight chance something minor could happen and you require a band aid or some Stingoes whilst away from home.

Would you be prepared?  Have you thought about organising a do-it-yourself first aid kit to take away?

Bought kits are great (and also expensive), but you can easily put together your own.

The essentials:

  • Bandaids (will help cuts, grazes, bites and blisters – to name a few)
  • Gauze (to help clean wounds and stop bleeding)
  • Surgical tape (useful if the bandaid just isn’t big enough)
  • Small scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Antiseptic wipes
  • Pain relief medication
  • Antihistamine cream/tablets
  • Antibacterial cream

Depending on your destination and length of travel, would obviously determine additional items and quantities needed.

The list above is inexpensive to purchase and will fit into a small cosmetic travel bag.  You wouldn’t use all items on one trip either, so you would more than likely be able to use on multiple trips.
