When was the last time you inventoried your medicine cabinet for essential self-care items? It’s never good to be in a situation where you need something immediately but you’re all out or what you have in stock is no longer useable and getting to the store isn’t convenient.
Here are some basic items to keep available:
- Medical Tape
- Antibiotic Ointment
- Hydrogen Peroxide
- Antihistamine Cream
- Extra Toothbrushes
- Eye Drops
If you are prone to headaches or heartburn or congestion, have over the counter options available but keep out of reach of children and pets. Keep an eye on expiration dates and follow directions for dosage. If you have prescription pills from past injuries, surgeries, or illnesses, make sure not to share with others and visit the FDA website for safe disposal options.
