Self-care at home is the right choice for most minor illnesses and injuries. Normally, with coughs, colds, stomach upsets, sore throats and headaches, the right medicine, plenty of fluids and proper rest is enough to help you feel better.
We all get ill from time to time so keep your medicine cabinet stocked with essentials like pain killers, antihistamines, cold and flu remedies, anti-diarrhoea and indigestion medicine. If you have children, make sure you’ve got the right medicines according to their age.
Keep your first aid kit stocked with:
- Safety pins
- Antiseptic cream
- Insect bite/sting cream or spray
- Cleansing wipes
- Digital thermometer
