Don't leave home without these medicines and medical supplies. By Paula Bianca Abiog

article2_first-aid-kit.jpgOn the road, you’re more likely to get a stomachache or even fever as your body acclimatizes to a new environment. You definitely don’t want to get caught in the middle of your family vacation without proper medication, especially when you’re traveling with children. Drugstores and clinics may not always be nearby, so it’s better to think ahead and bring a first aid kit along with your other travel essentials.

Dr. Malou Mallari, Family Medicine Consultant for Caritas Health Shield, says, “Every time a family is on a long journey, they must always be prepared with medicines and medical supplies, most especially if one or more of the family members have hypertension, diabetes, asthma, or hypersensitivity problems.”

Browse through the gallery for Dr. Mallari’s suggestions on what medicines and medical supplies to pack in your travel first aid kits.
