First aid product

Top tens products meant for the first aid box are:

1) First Aid Kits: Every athlete, exerciser, hiker or sports enthusiast should have a complete first aid kit and know how to use it.

2) Neosporin Antibiotic Ointment: Neosporin antibiotic ointment is good to have on hand for those minor scrapes, cuts and abrasions. It helps prevent infection during healing and may reduce the appearance of scars.

3) Sun block / Sunscreen: Sun block and sun screen is an essential part of your injury prevention and first aid kit. Protect against harmful UV rays and avoid sunburn while exercising outdoors with these products.

4) NO AD Sun block Lotion: My personal favorite for sun block protection, No-Ad brand is paba-free, non-greasy, waterproof sun block in a variety of SPF levels.

More of the products

1) Elastic Bandages and Wraps: Elastic wraps and bandages are a must-have in every exerciser's medicine cabinet. For holding ice bags in place, to providing extra support for muscle and joint pains, a wrap works wonders.

2) Adhesive Bandages: For various scrapes, cuts, and abrasions, adhesive bandages come in handy for exercisers, athletes, and sports parents. Buy them on-line and save.

3)Emergency First Aid Reference Book: Great to have at home for reference, review and research, a first aid book can keep you informed of what to do in emergencies. Recommended reading for everyone -- just don't wait until there is an emergency to crack it open. Read it before you need it and return for a refresher from time to time.

4)Spenco 2nd Skin Dressing: Spenco 2nd Skin Dressing is a hydro gel dressing which is great for treating abrasions, minor cuts and burns, blisters and the like. The dressing is cool and provides a moist covering so it won't stick to the wound upon removal.

5) Blistex Lip Protection with SPF: Any outdoor activity can lead to chapped, dry lips. A nice way to prevent this is to keep a Blistex with SPF in your pocket.

6) Chapstick Lip Protection with SPF: And for those who prefer the flavors of Chapstick, this lip protection with SPF works just as well as Blistex.

All these should necessarily be there in the first aid box. It is mandatory to keep the above mentioned products in the first aid kit.
