  • Alcohol wipes, hydrogen peroxide and basic soap for basic cleaning of cuts and wounds.
  • Burnol cream for burns.
  • Tweezers to remove slivers or foreign objects from skin.
  • Plastic gloves for attending to wounds with blood.
  • Instant cold packs for bumps and bruises and sprained ankles.
  • Thermometer for fevers (preferably one that can be used orally and is digital).
  • Pain relievers – acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil). Ibuprofen should only be used if child is more than six months old.
  • Cold medicines – most children need only a decongestant and a cough suppressant.
  • Skin creams including one percent hydrocortisone for itchy rashes and antibiotic ointments for cuts and scrapes.

Remember to always check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking any medication.
