  • Thermometer
  • Band-Aids
  • First-aid ointment
  • ACE wrap for muscle strains or minor sprains
  • Over-the-counter pain reliever and/or fever reducer such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen or both
  • Over-the-counter allergy product with antihistamine

  • Over-the-counter cold product with a decongestant
  • Over-the-counter anti-diarrhea medication
