What would be a generic first aid-kit while travelling?
Q: Can you suggest a generic first aid-kit to be carried during any travel. This should primarily help us in case of cold and cough; lose motions or diarrhoea, fever, vomitings, muscle catch or pull, stomach-ache, head-ache, bruises or injuries etc. and any other unexpected health problems which you feel would be come across during travel.
A:First aid kit should be modified to take care of disorders likely to afflict the individual. For example if a person is likely to go to a pollen area, then antihistamines should be included. Otherwise the following may be adequate: 1. Sinarest tabs. for adults; syrup for children (cough and cold) 2. Crocin (for fever, aches and pain). 3. Ciprobid (broadspectrum antibacterial) 4. Diarlop caps. and suspension (for loose motions). 5. Metocontin Continus (for nausea and vomiting in adults only). 6. Colirid (for colicky pain) 7. Fenaplus (for musculo-skeletal pain, sprains etc.) 8. Dicloran Gel for topical use in sprains, muscle ache etc. 9. Sinarest Nasal drops 10. Dexona eye/ear drops.
