Medical kit depending on the age of the children

Medical kit depending on the age of the children

The medical kit is always ready since we’ve got kids, even if the kids are going to grandma’s place or a class trip, or parents are going away and the kids are left behind for a few days. This is very important especially when our kid is having something continuously. The devil never sleeps, so it’s much better to make sure everything is there if it is necessary.

It’s always good to check:

  • What’s in this kit before we are going away again, or the holiday season comes. Things might run out or be missing from last time.

Also have to check the:

  • Validity dates on the boxes, and throw away the old or the expired medicines, and go and get a new one. If we need a prescription from our doctor, we also have to calculate the time we can have the medicines.

Small ones (Age 2-7)

  • Anti-diarrhea medication
  • Painkiller
  • Intestinal antiseptic
  • Fever damper
  • Ear drops – if they get infected in the pool
  • Antibacterial cream for skin infections
  • Cream or gel for mosquito or bug bites
  • Skin sedative if they get sunburned a bit
  • Thermometer
  • Maybe antibiotics (if needed)
  • Syrup for cough and for dry throat
  • Basic bandage
  • Band-Aid set
  • Calcium for allergies or any special medicine the child takes for that
  • Any special medicine the kid is taking

Big ones (Age 8-14)

  • Intestinal antiseptic
  • Painkiller
  • Cream or gel for mosquito or bug bites
  • Fever damper
  • Thermometer
  • Basic bandage
  • Band-Aid set
  • Skin sedative if they get burned
  • Calcium tablets
  • Allergy medicines

And for the bigger ones (Age 14+)

  • Fever damper
  • Painkiller
  • Intestinal antiseptic
  • Cream or gel for mosquito or bug bites
  • Allergy medicines or minimum calcium tablets
  • Nasal spray
  • Medicines against infections – fungal infections, bacterial infections
  • After-sun cream

Don’t leave this for the last minute, especially if you need a prescription from the doctor. Most of the time we don’t need this, but who knows?
