Medicine cabinet: correct stocking and careful checking

That's why we recommend checking the medicine cabinet now, and at least once a year, for expired medications, and restocking it with the most important aids. In addition to medicines for chronic complaints, such as antidiabetics or antihypertensives, it should also contain remedies for the most significant acute ailments:

Medications

  • Pain and fever remedies
  • Medicine for coughs, colds and sore throats
  • Remedies for digestive complaints, heartburn, flatulence, constipation and diarrhoea
  • Remedies for mosquito bites, sunburn, itching
  • Wound disinfectant
  • Wound and healing ointment
  • Ointment or gel for bruises, strains and sprains

Dressing materials

  • Sterile compresses
  • Gauze bandages and elastic bandages
  • First-aid kit
  • Burn dressing packet
  • Adhesive plasters, bandage staples, safety pins
  • Waterproof fixing bandage
  • Quick wound dressing, plaster strips, spray plaster
  • Cotton wool
  • Splinter tweezers, bandage scissors

Other

Fever thermometer, cooling compresses (refrigerator storage), first aid instructions, disposable gloves, tick tongs

Our tip: Make sure your medicine cabinet is dark, cool, dry and out of reach of children, preferably lockable. That way, you can get through the winter and the rest of the year in spite of sore throats and the like.

Get well soon!
