An Ounce Of Preparation Is Worth A Pound Of Cure

By: News Canada

(NC)-Doesn't it always seem that you are out of bandages just when you need one the most - your new shoes have created massive blisters on your feet or you have just nicked yourself in the kitchen. With a bit of planning and well thought-out purchases, you can keep your medicine cabinet stocked with the necessary essentials and be prepared for all common medical situations.

Things your bathroom cabinet should never be without:

  • Bandages and gauze to keep wounds covered and clean

  • Medicated cream or antibiotic ointment

  • Antiseptic wash for cleaning and disinfecting scrapes, cuts and burns

  • Decongestant and serum for cold and cough

  • Antihistamine for relief from allergies

  • Pain, inflammation and fever relievers

  • Anti-nausea tablets and bismuth subsalicylate for diarrhea

  • An eyewash to flush harmful substances from the eyes

  • A thermometer to monitor body temperature for fever

  • A first aid handbook - reviewed regularly, preferably before an emergency occurs.

With Canadians' safety in mind, a variety of advanced care products have been created to treat all minor wounds, including BAND-AID? Brand Hurt-Free™ Antiseptic Wash - a cleanser featuring an anesthetic to help ease the throbbing of minor wounds - and BAND-AID? Brand Water Block Plus™ Finger-Wrap - with a unique tapered design to stay on fingers better.
