In our home we have got all kinds of first aid medicines required.It is good to keep some medicines as it will be helpful when any of our family member fall sick and needs some immediate treatment. Eventhough there are pharmacy's opened 24 hrs and clinic where casualty is always opened for quick treatment, keeping some medicines in our home is utmost important so that we can get some relief before consulting a doctor. we have paracetamol tablets stocked as its the one important medicine, ointments, headache bombs/tablets, crocin, band aid, nebasulf powder etc., What do you generally keep in your first aid kit?

I also think FIRST AID BOX is really important for us in our life.Although there is no one at my home,but I always buy some medicine for catching a cold or cutting,and so on,which is also pretty good.

No I don't and sometimes I wish I did. I often cut myself and then I am looking all over for a bandage and can never find anything. I think everyone should have just a basic first aid kit in their home.

We do have the first aid kit ready all the time. My mom do keep them well organized and will be helping the neighbors also when ever some one falls ill. I am basically from a village and we don't have any pharmacy or clinic around 20 Kilo Meters from my place. We have the band aid as well as ointments which heal, wounds and burns. Paracetamol is a common tablet which every one would need when suffering from fever,cold or cough. Along with these basic needs we do have the Blood Pressure checking machine and Medicines to control both high blood pressure and low blood pressure. Electoral packets used when some one are suffering from dehydration.

I also have a first aid cabinet at home. But, I also keep some bottles of ointment, medicines, etc here and there. One can never know when accidents do occur. At that time, everyone will be searching here and there for some sort of ointment or medicine. There are some bandages, tubes of different kinds of ointment, gauze, cotton, cotton buds etc. I don't keep medicine in the cabinet as children are also accessible to it.

Yes I do have a first aid box in my home. I keep off course bandades and some bandages. And ointments and some medicines. I think its always good to have one lying around your house just in case.

its important to have first aid material at home. You dont have to have a first aid kit as such but material that u can use in an emergency.
