  • A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medication such as ibuprofen, or acetaminophen.

  • A tube of antibiotic ointment.

  • An assortment of sterile adhesive bandages and gauze pads.

  • A supply of your prescription medications.

  • Hypoallergenic adhesive tape, soap and some moistened towelettes.

  • Scissors, tweezers and a thermometer.

  • Petroleum jelly.
