Holidays are here and you are definitely going with children on vacation. Remember to pack everything you need. An important part of the luggage is the first aid kit. What should it contain?

If you are going for a longer trip abroad, be sure to consult your pediatrician in advance about any vaccines or special drugs your child will need. In addition, include:

  • all medicines if your child is taking any
  • several pens for immediate application of the drug to a strong allergic attack – anaphylactic shock if your child has an allergy (epi pen)
  • common medicines: parallels, nose drops, ears and eyes – you know for yourself which works best for your child
  • basic dressing material and skin disinfectant, patches for children, possibly hypoallergenic and water resistant patches
  • chlorophyll spray (a great aid in controlling skin abrasions)
  • panthenol spray and aloe vera gel – effective in healing burns / skin burns
  • probiotics – appropriate to your child’s age
  • activated carbon and Hylak – suitable for the treatment of stomach and intestinal infections in children older than 2 years
