How do I create the perfect travel first aid kit

Preparing your travel medical kit (first aid kit) is an essential part of your trip preparation. Your kit needs to be created with your destination and personal issues in mind. It should cover pre-existing issues as well as items that are particular to your destination as well as the issues that you may face anywhere on your travels. We have put together a very good kit. However, it is not complete. Depending on your destination, you may need antibiotics, anti-malarial medication, etc which can only be obtained with a doctor’s prescription. There is space for them in the container. You may also need hand sanitizer, sunscreen, birth control, insecticides, mosquito netting, etc.

Why I need a first aid kit?

When accidents happen and you are in the middle of nowhere or in a country where it is difficult to communicate due to language issues, you want to be able to get yourself out of trouble at least until you can see a doctor.

What should I take?

There is balance here between buying and carting around whole pharmacy and packing light. You need to make sure that you have enough to get yourself out of trouble.

So what do I need and why?

Antiseptic powder 12.5g (1)

When you travel in hot humid climates, there is a higher chance of tropical ulcers and antiseptic creams and liquids will just not stay put long enough to do any good. The powder absorbs the liquid and kills a wide range of germs, including bacteria, viruses, fungi and simple organisms and is used as an antiseptic for the treatment and prevention of infection in minor skin trauma including burns, cuts and other minor injuries.

Bandage clip (1)

This is the easiest way to hold a bandage in place.

Bandaid (10)

These fix small cuts and abrasions which will undoubtedly happen over a long period of travel. Cuts and abrasions are the most common form of injury. Band aids can also be used for helping with blisters.

Burn aid sachet 3.5g (2)

Burnaid is for minor burns, scalds and sunburn. It provides antiseptic cooling that cools and soothes and helps relieve pain.

Cotton tips (10)

Cotton tips and for cleansing, removal of debris and for applying ointments and hydrogen peroxide.

Crepe bandage 10cm x 4 m (1)

For when you have something a bit bigger than a cut, basic crepe bandages are useful for keeping small dressings clean and in place until you can get some medical attention.

Gauze pieces 7.5cm x 7.5cm (3)

Use it to apply pressure to a wound, clean an injury, soak up blood, help stop bleeding, and even form part of a basic dressing for small-to-medium wounds. The best type of gauze to carry in a first aid kit is individually wrapped sterile squares. This eliminates the need to cut them to size when you need them quickly and obviously makes it easier to keep the wound clean and sterile.

Heavy weight conforming bandage 10cm x 4m (1)

These are for larger injuries.

Hydralyte (3 satchels)

When you vomit, you lose essential salts. This will rehydrate you quickly.

Ibuprofen (20 tablets)

This helps with pain relief.

Instant cold pack small 80g (1)

To control and alleviate the gore and pain caused by strain, bruise, pull and burn, also can rapidly remove the pain and discomfort induced by fever, headache, toothache, mosquito bite

Itch relief cream sachet (1)

Relief from insect bites, tree scratches, etc

Micropore adhesive tape 1.25cm wide x 9 m (1)

Surgical tape is one of those essential emergency items for when you need to apply and secure gauze or a bandage to a wound, although plasters can do the same job if need be. It can be handy in other situations as well.

Needle (1)

Used for extracting splinters, ticks, etc.

Safety pins (3)

Used to attach bandages

Saline ampules (2)

You can use sterile saline solution to wash out eyes and clean cuts & grazes.

Scissors (1)

Useful for trimming gauze or bandages to size. Just be careful if you do carry scissors to ensure that your first aid kit goes in your checked bag when you are in transit or else airline security will take them off you.

Small spray bottle 6% hydrogen peroxide (1)

This is a great way to clean cuts.

Strepsils (6)

These aid with sore throat.

Thermal blanket (1)

Used to prevent/counter hypothermia.

Thermometer (1)

Used for checking temperature.

Tweezers (1)
