Your Medicine Cabinet
There are several items that the NHS advises you always keep at home in your medicine cabinet. These include the following: Painkillers such as aspirin, paracetamol and ibuprofen. These will help ease minor aches and pains. Remember that aspirin should not be taken by anyone under 16 years of age. Antihistamines such as cetirizine and loratadine will help with hayfever and allergies. Antihistamines can also be bought in a cream form which can help with bites, stings and rashes. Oral rehydration salts such as dioralyte are useful to have in the house for when you are suffering from diarrhoea and vomiting. They will help to replace the water and essential minerals that we lose during this time. Antacids may help relieve stomach ache, heartburn and trapped wind. They can be bought in tablet or liquid form. Sunscreen is also useful to have in the house as even a brief time in the sun can lead to sunburn. As well as the above items, it is also useful to keep bandages, plasters, a thermometer, antiseptic, eyewash solution, sterile dressings and medical tape in your first aid box. Call in store today and stock up on these essential items.
