Purse Full Of Preparedness

Various ailments can arise when out and about. Stay prepared with a purse full of effective and fast-acting products. Whether the concern is a headache or allergies, stocking up with the right remedies can make a big difference. Here’s what to purchase and keep on hand year-round.


1. Pain medication

Headaches, muscle pain, sports injuries, and chronic conditions like arthritis can be a real pain. Don’t let such ailments slow down productivity and fun. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are an excellent choice for treating pain and inflammation. Analgesics are another option that can be particularly effective for fever and pain. Purchasing a travel-size version is a good idea to ensure the drug is readily available without taking up too much room. Some people also find that topical pain relief, like a medicated patch, can make a big difference for specific pain conditions. Find the option that works best, and always keep a small supply nearby.

2. Bandages

When a cut or scrape occurs, a bandage is often needed to stop the bleeding and keep the area clean. Bandages can also provide essential relief for blisters from uncomfortable shoes. Small and compact, this essential product can be slipped into any purse or backpack. To round out the on-the-go first aid kit, consider adding an antibacterial ointment to the bag.

3. Allergy relief

More than 100 million people in the US experience allergies each year. Whether chronic or seasonal, prepare for the inevitable allergy attack with over-the-counter (OTC) products. Antihistamines and decongestants both come in various forms, including pills, nasal sprays, and eye drops. Find the product that works best and stock up ahead of time. Quick and effective relief can be the difference between cutting plans short and staying out as intended.

4. Cough drops and medication

A persistent cough or sore throat are both extremely bothersome symptoms. When a bad cold or flu develops, OTC medication can offer quick relief. Cough drops are an easy solution to throw in a bag and use as needed. Some contain menthol, while others contain vitamins or herbs to soothe the throat. Multi-symptom cough medication can target any symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as fever, body aches, cough, and congestion.

When to escalate care

Although a well-stocked bag can help, if any concerning symptoms such as chest pain, dizziness, difficulty breathing, uncontrolled bleeding, or weakness arise, a call to the doctor is in order. More serious injuries or illnesses may require a trip to the emergency room or doctor’s office for prescription medication and a possible discussion of more serious interventions.

Your personal pharmacy

A well-stocked bag full of essential products for treating various ailments can make a big difference. Cuts, headaches, allergies, and cough can be treated quickly and effectively with the proper preparation. Grab the right products from the pharmacy ahead of time for targeted relief.
