Self Care At Home

We all have small accidents at home and suffer from seasonal ailments such as coughs and colds. Most of the time we can patch ourselves up and care for ourselves with the help of a first aid kit and a well stocked medicine cabinet containing over the counter remedies. Don’t forget keep your medicine cabinet out of the reach of children.

Your medicine cabinet should contain pain relief, antihistamines, oral re-hydration tablets and indigestion treatment. Always follow the directions on medicine packets and information leaflets and never exceed the stated dose. If you have any questions about medicines you would like to buy, ask your local pharmacist.

Your First Aid Kit should contain bandages, plasters, a thermometer, antiseptic, eyewash solution, sterile dressings, medical tape and tweezers.

Ask Your Pharmacist

From sprains to stomach upsets; your local pharmacist is qualified to give expert advice without an appointment for many conditions. Very often your pharmacist can offer advice that will save you a trip to the GP.
