Health Tip: Keep a First Aid Kit in the Car

11/06/13

(HealthDay News) -- You probably have a host of first aid supplies at home, but what about in your car?

The American Academy of Pediatrics says you should store these essentials in your vehicle:

  • A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medication such as ibuprofen, or acetaminophen.
  • A tube of antibiotic ointment.
  • An assortment of sterile adhesive bandages and gauze pads.
  • A supply of your prescription medications.
  • Hypoallergenic adhesive tape, soap and some moistened towelettes.
  • Scissors, tweezers and a thermometer.
  • Petroleum jelly.
