What To Have In Your First Aid Kit At Home

A first aid kit is a good decision for every home, but there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to these kits. There are certain factors to take into account when building your own home kit.

When deciding what to include in your first aid kit, consider the level of medical and first aid training you and the people who will have access to this kit have, or are willing and able to get. For example, most first aid kits contain a triangular bandage, but someone without first aid training would probably not know what to do with it.

Other potential problems with medicines included in kits are allergic reactions, overdosing and interactions between different medicines. You should know what your household can and cannot take and tailor your kit to your family. You know your family’s health conditions, so consider how you can best cater for them.

Where you live and whether there is a doctor or pharmacy nearby are also factors to take into consideration. You’re less likely to need a big, wide-ranging first aid kit if you live in the city as opposed to far from doctors and pharmacies.
