2022 is all about holidays!

Of course, a filled first-aid kit should not be missing.

With this equipment you are on the safe side.

Ate something wrong in a restaurant or stepped on a pointed conch.

There are a number of dangers lurking on holiday that can quickly lead to illness or accidents.

Therefore, a bulging first-aid kit is essential.

But what should not be missing in the small emergency set?

In addition to medication that you need all the time (the pill, antiallergic medication, insulin or blood pressure medication), you should definitely think about the following:

The right sun protection

Medicines for sunburns and insect bites are standard equipment for vacations.

Even if the sun is not that strong in the spring months, you should be particularly careful because of the winter paleness on the body.

A protective cream with sun protection factor 30 is recommended here.

A lip protection with sufficient SPF is also part of the first-aid kit.

The first-aid kit should always contain sunscreen when planning a beach vacation.

For holidaymakers who are sensitive to car or bus journeys, travel pills are a must.

If you have any questions about medication, going to the local pharmacy usually helps.

Disinfectants, handkerchiefs, blister plasters and clinical thermometers are also useful travel companions.

Especially in times of a pandemic, disinfectants are popular.

So you can quickly disinfect wounds or hands to avoid infection.

FFP2 masks are also part of the packing list here.

Correct storage of medication

It is not only important to take medicines with you, but also to store them.

Many medicines are sensitive to temperature and light: “It is best to store them at room temperature up to a maximum of 25 degrees.

But that is only a guideline," explains Dr.

Grit Berger, head of the pharmacy at the central clinic in Bad Berka.

According to the pharmacist, if they are two or three degrees warmer for a few days, that is not a problem.

Only with sensitive medicines such as insulin "should the temperature of two to eight degrees be strictly maintained".

To protect the medication from the heat, for example on the outward and return journey, she recommends a cool bag with ice packs.

And the vaccination card should also be there.

This is an important part of a trip, not only because of the corona vaccination.

In some countries - regardless of Covid-19 - you have to show proof of vaccination upon entry.

Examples of this are yellow fever or typhoid.

Vaccinations, antibiotics and Co.: Be careful when traveling long-distance

When on holiday within the EU, the nearest pharmacy can usually be found quickly.

When traveling to Africa or Asia, however, you should be prepared for all eventualities.

Counterfeit medicines are rampant on the market in many countries on these continents.

For tropical climates, anti-diarrhea and anti-malaria tablets are also a must.

When traveling to remote locations, it can be useful to carry antibiotics with you.

In this case, it is best to seek a brief conversation with your family doctor beforehand.

On flights, pay attention to which medicines you are allowed to take with you and, above all, how much.

In principle, medicines can be carried in both travel and hand luggage.

In the case of liquid medicines, only 100 milliliters per container may end up in hand luggage and only if they are transported in a transparent one-liter bag.
