Home First Aid Kit


The home is the safest place on earth for everyone, but then we do not live in good old times when the homes were nothing but caves carved out of stone and with nothing inside them. Today, homes are filled with more gizmos than one could think of, not to mention the innumerable things scattered in and around each of the rooms

It can happen anytime, anywhere at home

Banging against walls, tripping on the carpets and rugs, touching electric wires and plugs, scalds and burns, cuts and bruises are not what can happen to you only in movies or in your imagination. Everyone, from a toddler learning to crawl to an elderly adult are prone to getting hurt in the most unimaginable way at homes.

A handy kit goes a long way

Simple medicines, a few antiseptics, pain killers, spirit or cleaning solutions, bandages, cotton, ointments that soothe and knick knacks like tweezers and scissors come handy when dealing with small injuries at home. But the important point is, Keep all these things together in one place, either a box with the words "First Aid" written clearly across it or in a cupboard or drawer, all of which are easily reached and known to everyone who inhabits the household.

Doctor before the doctor

Many a times, simple antiseptics and ointments can take care of many a bruises and broken skin. You definitely don't need to be a specialist doctor or a medico to learn how to bandage a cut finger or a scrapped knee. Remember, First Aid simply means the healing touch that a hurting body needs, be it from the expert hands of a medico or the coarse and rough hands of a concerned parent.
