Many people think that tourist first-aid kit should be like one more luggage. Fortunately, things are different. Almost all medicines can be bought on the spot, if you are, of course, not going to the most far-far away points of the world.
You need to take with you those drugs that your life depends on or those that the doctor prescribed with the exact dosage. In addition, we have compiled a basic first-aid kit for those who don’t want to search for pharmacies:
- Any painkiller of the type Nurofen, Ibuprofen, Panadol and others.
- Sorbents that help with food poisoning (Eucarbon, Diosmectit etc.)
- Drugs that help with tympanites, heaviness in the stomach and overeating, such as Mezim or Espumizan.
- Medicines designed to restore water-electrolyte and acid-base balance. For diarrhea and vomiting, for example, Reflor, Lopidum, Imodium and other various drugs.
It is important to choose medicines that are right for you. You can consult with your doctor in advance. Also, don’t forget about the antiseptic for treatment of wounds and patches, tablets for throat pain, for example, Septolete or Strepsils. If you are going to the sea, be sure to put in a first aid kit Bepanten or any other cream against sunburn. It’s important: Take only those drugs that you know how to use and for which you definitely have no contraindications. For prescription drugs, attach a properly prepared prescription or certificate from a doctor.
