It doesn’t matter how old we are, how we spend our days or how careful we try to be – accidents happen. Bring prepared with a basic first aid kit will help you to deal with cuts, bruises, grazes, stings and any other nasty surprise that warrants first aid. A good first aid kit should contain adhesive bandages in assorted sizes and shapes, sterile non-stick dressings or gauze, medical tape, tweezers, scissors, safety pins, a thermometer, soft bandages, antiseptic cream, antihistamine cream, a cold pack, paracetamol or ibuprofen for pain relief and fever, medications for diarrhoea or an upset stomach, insect repellent, sunscreen with at least SPF15, lip protection stick with SPF factor and ideally contact details for a local medical centre or doctor.
