•Anti-diarrhoeal medicines
•Rehydration mixture
•Indigestion remedy (for example, antacids)

•Sunscreen – SPF15 or higher
•Sunburn treatment (for example, calamine)
•Tweezers and sharp scissors
•A thermometer
•A selection of plasters, non-absorbent cotton wool, elastic bandages and dressings

•Keep the medicine chest in a secure, locked place out of reach of small children
•Always read the instructions and use the suggested dose
•Watch expiry dates – don’t keep or use medicines past their sell-by date
