Below are a couple of basic items that should always be available in case random illnesses or injuries occur.
Antihistamine spray or cream
Allergic reactions often occur when the body comes in contact with reactive substances. These could result in swelling, flare response, pain and secretions at the infected area.
Antihistamines often supress these reactions and induce healing.
Wounds often get contaminated and hence the need for antibiotic creams if the wound isn’t sterile. This will prevent infection and promote healing.
Antiseptic (Alcohol, Hydrogen Peroxide, Iodine)
Direct antimicrobial substances are used to clean tissues in ulcers or open wounds to decrease the possibility of infection. They tend to increase the sterility of wounds.
