What You Need in Your Travel First Aid Kit

Here is a list of basic first aid kit contents for international travel. I recommend bringing Western medications with you, since you might not be able to find them easily on the road. You can then incorporate any local, natural cures you find along the way (When I came down with a terrible rash in Cambodia, lemons were the only thing that relieved the itching!).

  • Bug spray
  • Sunblock
  • Any prescriptions/vitamins
  • Contacts/glasses
  • Eyedrops
  • Tissues/toilet paper
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Wet wipes
  • Cold & sinus meds
  • Benadryl
  • Imodium & Pepto Bismol
  • Rehydration salts
  • Sleep aids
  • Neosporin
  • Band aids
  • Cipro (or other rx)
  • Malaria pills (if needed)
  • Tums
  • Q-tips
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
