Having a well-stocked first-aid kit on hand can help you deal with everyday injuries on the road and at home. Stock up on first-aid supplies and put together a first-aid kit for both your home and your car. If you already have a first-aid kit for each, go through it and make a note of anything you may need to restock. Basic items you’ll need are:
• Bandages in various sizes
• Gauze pads and rolls of gauze
• Antibiotic ointment and an antiseptic
• A cold compress, and
• An elastic wrap
You can also buy a first-aid kit at your local drug store, if you would rather not put together one of your own.
