As you can probably tell from the weather, festival season is upon us. This year, make sure you are prepared for the worst by packing a few first aid essentials, so you don’t miss a second of fun!
Paracetamol – ease any mild to moderate aches and pains.
Ibuprofen - Use together with paracetamol if the former isn’t quite doing the job. Take with food and avoid if you have asthma or stomach problems.
Mepore dressings - air permeable, self-adhesive, absorbent dressings, ideal for covering minor burns, cuts, and grazes – accidents will happen.
Mild hydrocortisone cream - good for treating insect bites and irritated skin
Condoms – be prepared!
Antihistamines - great for treating allergic reactions and bites.
Immodium – street food is delicious but uncooked food will spoil the party. Don’t get caught short.
Gaviscon – fried food and heartburn go hand-in-hand pack some antacids and nip it in the bud.
Vaseline - excellent for dry lips, chapped skin – you name it!
