Information about the travel pharmacy
During the summer holidays, people love to travel, exploring and lots of adventures. Due to all the excitements of the long trip, many forget to reload their travel pharmacy. As a result, most people are only deficient in diseases during their holidays. Before you start a trip, you should check your travel pharmacy.
Just in time before travel:
- Are your existing medicines expired?
- Do you have any medication you need to take regularly in sufficient quantity?
- Have you asked if you need to take special measures for the destination? (E.g., malaria care or certain vaccinations?) Ask your pharmacist.
- Do you have sunscreen in sufficient quantity? For an adult, 20 ml of sun milk per day, for a child 10 ml. A sunburn can mess up your holidays.
- Even if medicines in the travel destination are often cheaper, we recommend you buy your medication in your home country .
- Before taking any unknown medications that may endanger and have side effects on your health, consult your pharmacy in good time and refresh your travel pharmacy.
Here is a list of medicines that should be included with the trip:
- Spray for insect bites, jellyfish, itching and sunburn
- Sunscreen products
- A means for wound disinfection
- Eye drops against conjunctivitis
- Tablets for diarrhea
- Plaster, gauze bandage, elastic bandage
- Fever thermometers, tweezers, scissor
Recommended medicines for the road:
- Medication for travel sickness and nausea
- Vitamins and mineral tablets
- Anti-stomach remedies
- Ointment for sports injuries
- Remedies for constipation
- nose drops
Please note the following:
- Always take your travel pharmacy and medicine with you in your hand luggage
- Store as cool as possible and avoid direct sun exposure
- Do not swim in tropical waters
- No unprotected intimate contacts
- Patients who are chronically ill must take their tablets with them (observe the time shift when taking the medication!).
