Everybody takes a little spill here or there or gets a cough or diarrhea and then stumbles around the bathroom trying to find bandages, cough medicine or other medication. That's why you should always have these medicine cabinet essentials on hand:

  • Hydrogen peroxide for wounds
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Adhesive bandages and sterile gauze pads
  • An oral thermometer
  • Pain reliever, such as acetaminophen, for headaches/other aches and pains
  • Sunscreen
  • Anti-diarrhea medication
  • Cough medicine
  • Cold/flu medicine
