The first-aid kit on travel and on the sea - for the child and the adult

Recently, I was asked to tell me what myfirst aid kit with a travel. Initially, it was generally very small until there was a child, but then it grew quite large in size. It is clear that when traveling to the sea, you must make medical insurance if you are traveling abroad, and it is the doctor who will prescribe medications to buy at the pharmacy (and in some countries, drugs are given out right away when they visit the doctor).

When traveling in Russia, you can use the CHI policy, the main thing is not to forget it. However, I feel better when the most basic and familiar medicines are on hand and you have access to them right away.

My approach to drugs

Once again, it is advisable to do in advancetravel insurance, to be able to appear to the doctor, so that he prescribed the necessary drugs. Ask why then drag it all on a journey? Yes, you can not take it. But it is calmer and more convenient when you immediately have the basic at hand

For example, in Poland the doctor prescribed everything that is alreadyIt was in the first-aid kit, and did not have to go to the pharmacy. And in any case, it is necessary to have antipyretic to wait for a call to the hospital or the arrival of a doctor. Well, sometimes you can get on the road, when the doctor is very far away, at least something you can try to do.

I remember in China, a first-aid kit was very useful, soas in our “village” it was somewhat problematic to get medical help and buy something at the pharmacy. Also, I still have the habit of rechecking everything that we are prescribed, and to consult with someone else for the purpose of the appointment. By and large, the scheme of action in simple cases is already known and only an internal diagnosis is needed.

Honestly, I think it's better for parents not tolose vigilance and know at least the basics. For example, if the cough is wet in a child and he coughs, you do not need to give him a mucolytic, which increases the amount of secretion, a small child may “choke”.

If you are in Asia, remember that with dengue fever in no case can not bring down the temperature, nothing but PARACETAMOL. By default, always check with them before finding out the diagnosis. Well, in general, he is considered better for children than the same nurofen.

Antipyretic
- Syrup with ibuprofen (Nurofen) for a child, tablets nurofen for an adult
- Paracetamol syrup (Eferalgan, Panadol)
- Candles Tsefekon with paracetamol. It is possible and others, just this is a cheap analogue, apply if the syrup fails to give ..
- Candles Papaverine, used in conjunction with Tsefekon

Antibiotics
- Antibiotic Amoxiclav or Augmentin.
- Antibiotic Tsedeks.
You can also take Sumamed (Azithromycin), but he is quite strong and just should not drink it.

With a cold
- Drops Nazivin or any other vasoconstrictor in a concentration suitable for children.
- Saline solution (although on a journey it is easier to simply dissolve salt water on the spot than to drag off saline)
- Drops Rinofumicin, has anti-inflammatory / mucolytic and mild vasoconstrictor action. Very small children are not worth it.

When coughing
- Solution Lasolvan (Ambrobene), it is possible and just in the form of drops to drink, and in the form of inhalation in a nebulizer
- Solution Berodual for the nebulizer, it is not desirable to use it just like that, a strong preparation.
- You can also take a syrup stopping cough (with a dry unproductive), such as Sinekod, but we usually do not take this.

Otitis
- Otoscope on batteries. Probably, ordinary children can not take it, but the deaf often get otitis.
- Otof drops, it is an antibiotic, it is also used for perforation of the eardrum.
- Drops Otinum, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect.
We usually have these two names with us,they are very desirable to take to the sea, as there it is easy to get an infection in the ear. But Otipaks, popular and well-known to all, is a rather useless thing, since an analgesic is just needed only for pain. It is better to use Otinum instead, which also has an anti-inflammatory effect.

For the stomach
- Smekta bag, suitable for both children and adults, much more effective activated carbon.
- Regidron in bags
- Creon

For inhalation
- We have with us portable nebulizer, in which, when coughing, you can pour Lasolvan, normal saline, Miramistin and, in extreme cases, Berodual.
- Asterisk or some equivalent with eucalyptus oil. As a rule, these are hot steam inhalations. The same star can be used to grind the throat, heels, nose.

Other
- Miramistin, antispetik. You can splash on wounds for disinfection, as well as in the nose and throat.
- Hydrogen peroxide.
- Patch several types.
- Bandage sterile in a pack.
- Iodine in a special bottle, so that you can immediately use, or a pencil.
- Tiffirub, an analogue of an asterisk, only less irritating to the skin and can be smeared directly inside the nose (I use it more often)
- Cream Dexpanthenol or Depantenol.
- Sun cream with a high protection factor.
- Melatonin (Melaxen), helps with jetlags for both children and adults.
- Chamomile in bags.
- Digital Thermometer (thermometer and other travel gadgets).

What do I take for myself in addition

Not for nothing called the post "first-aid kit for an adult", because I myself use the same medicines as the child. For myself, almost nothing I take, and so here is a complete set :)

- Ibuprofen tablets / Nurofen from pain and heat. And I also take Citramon for myself, my head is the best for me.
- Faringosept tablets from the throat.
- Furacilin tablets for washing the nose andgargling, although in general it can be done with water and soda), but for me personally, furatsilin somehow helps more. Or Miramistin, but it is liquid and this is difficult.
- Drops Sanorin or the same Nazivin for the nose.
- Noshpa tablets.
- Enterosgel.

Separately about the thermometer

They asked about the thermometer, I decided to add straight tofast. I use electronic, as glass even mercury-free beat. Moreover, something I once could not find mercury-free in any nearby pharmacy. So, there is a problem with electronic thermometers - they show the devil knows what.

I bought 4 electronic thermal centers (one of themmeasures the temperature on the forehead and in the ear - it turned out to be the worst of all), and then each test in the normal state of a person and in case of illness, that is, he took measurements and compared them with a normal mercury thermometer. Precisely and always, the same thermometer AND AND DT-501 showed the same, however, you need to wait a few more minutes after it squeaks. And more or less works this, wrote about him separately, it can be reconfigured.

P.S. It seems to have forgotten nothing ... And you, what are you taking with you on the road?

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
