Stocking your medical cabinet is crucial as you never know when an illness is going to strike. Common illnesses such as cold and headaches shouldn’t have you lining up in the hospital. Instead, you should be using some of the already available solutions in the consumer market. So we decided to compile a short list of all the must-have products for your home pharmacy.
Stocking your home pharmacy
Pain management medication, at least the light ones are a must have for a home pharmacy. These products will be used to help relieve headaches, toothaches, and sometime stomachaches. Some of the recommended product brands include Biogesic, Dolfenal, and Medicol. Biogesic is for mild headaches, Dolfenal for minor body pains, and Medicol for severe pains. These are some of the best brands to have at home with you.
Cold and flu
Particularly during cold seasons, which is fall and winter months, you will need to have some remedies ready to counter these minor illnesses. If you have kids, then it is best to have them at all time—mainly because kids have a weaker or developing immune system, meaning that they contract cold and flu faster compared to adults. Out top recommended brands are Neozep and Bioflu.
Allergies vary a lot, and depending on the type; it is best to consult a doctor first. Most allergies are usually associated with foods, therefore make sure that you avoid those foods that you are allergic to. For other common allergies such as sneezing when exposed to pollen or dust, we recommend that you get Alletra, a commonly known allergy remedy.
You might not see them, but they are all around us, ready to infect you if you are not careful. Germs are responsible for most of our illnesses, and the best way to get rid of them is by using disinfectants. You can use them in your bathing water, in cleaning clothes and beddings—especially for young kids. These come in the form of medicated soap or some liquid, and the chances are that you already have one stocked in your home pharmacy.
Band-aids are a staple when it comes to a home pharmacy. They are best for small cuts. We also recommend that you get a bottle of hydrogen peroxide to wash wounds before applying band-aid on them. It can also be used to rinse the mouth once in a while; just make sure not to swallow it.
