Box clever

Have you checked all the stuff in your First Aid box lately? I did a little while ago and found a few things well out of date. Well, they’re not going to work well in an emergency or kill pain effectively if we get a steaming headache are they? So, if you haven’t done it lately, I suggest you do it soon and hand in the out of date stuff to the chemist/pharmacy.

As for what you need in a First Aid box, that seems to vary according to who makes the list. I mean, I think you always have to cover the basics of: Alcohol-free cleansing wipes, assorted fun looking plasters, a few bigger dressings, a few strong Steri-Strips, bandages, an eyebath, tweezers, antiseptic cream, a thermometer, painkillers e.g. paracetamol (suitable for the people who live in the house and their ages), antacids, insect bite and sting stuff, any sort of jollop for a sore throat, a few small sugar portions, a small plastic cup, condoms, a list of important phone numbers, notes on family members med history and meds they’re on and some small soft toy to distract any small kid in the house.
