Travel First Aid Kit

Travel First Aid Kit

You don't want to get caught on the road (or on a plane, train or bus) without the right equipment in the case of an emergency, no matter how small. Why not take along a travel first aid kit as a precaution? We recommend packing the following items in an old lunchbox.

Adult aspirin, acetaminophen or ibuprofen
Baby aspirin, acetaminophen or substitute
Anti-bacterial gel for handwashing without water
Antiseptic ointment
Insect repellent
Ointment for insect bites and sunburn
Adhesive bandages in various sizes, adhesive tape and gauze pads
Premoistened towelettes (make your own by putting paper towels in a weak solution of mild dish soap and water)
Antihistamine or allergy medication
Cough medicine and/or throat lozenges
Petroleum jelly
Oral and rectal (for baby) thermometers
Tweezers and needle (for removing splinters)
Fingernail scissors
Cotton balls and/or swabs
Antiseptic soap
Moleskin in case of blisters
First aid book
Lotion for diaper rash
Teething medicine
Nasal aspirator for baby
