Essential Travel Medicine to Take When Traveling

Travelling light is non-negotiable for most people. However, if you aren’t looking forward to experiencing what medical care in an unfamiliar area looks like, perhaps, making some room in your packing bag or luggage for some basic medical provisions might just be your best decision yet.

No matter where you choose to go and for whatever reason – work-related or for a vacation – your health should be your priority.

While travel can help broaden your mental horizon and refresh your zeal and motivation for work or life in general, the journey is also packed with several chances for illnesses and injuries.

Many ailments associated with travelling can be trashed out in a flash with only a few pills. Consequently, it is best you take a handful of the most essential of them.

If you perhaps have need for any kind of prescription medicine, it is best you go with one that would last in your trip. It is also highly essential that you take prescription drugs packaged in their original labelled bottles. Here are a number of drugs you need for your trip.

 

 

1. Mild Pain Reliever

You might end up sore in your thighs, hands or even suffer a headache due to the stress of the journey or while dragging and lifting luggage. If that is the case then, pain relievers would do you a lot of good.

While some are more effective for headaches, others might suffice when you need to reduce swelling or inflammation of a unique spot on your body.

Be careful not to use more than the recommended dosage indicated on the bottle label as indiscriminate usage can hurt your liver or kidneys.

 

2. Antihistamine

mild rashes

As complex as the name sounds, they work quite simply. They come in handy if you’re prone to allergies triggered by exposure to a new environment.

It is important to mention that some of them cause drowsiness, so be sure to use them when you have free time on your hands.

 

3. Antibiotic ointment

minor cuts

While packing and unpacking your luggage, there is a slight chance that you sustain a little cut or a bruise.

Most of these slight injuries should heal on their own but antibiotic ointments keep the open wounds free from infections and help them heal faster.

That said, it is essential that you wash the open wound with soap and water before applying an antibiotic ointment. Next, you could also apply Hurix’s Krim Luka Aloe Vera Plus, which is traditionally used for the relief of minor cuts and minor burns, and helps maintain healthy skin.If after all said and done, you notice signs of infections such as swelling or redness, it is high time you see a doctor.

 

4. Wound dressings
