what you need to have on hand when you go on a trip
Family trips are everyone's favorite, because during such trips, parents and children have the opportunity to spend a lot of quality time together, experiencing joint adventures, big and small.
However, in order for the trip to go as smoothly as possible, you must be prepared for different circumstances, especially if you are traveling with children. You should pay special attention when packing a travel pharmacy.
Find out what you should never forget to pack and why.
Travel medication for traveler’s diarrhea
Travel diarrhea is one of the most common travel ailments. Don’t let it ruin your vacation – be prepared.
Probival choco is a probiotic in the form of chocolate bears that binds pathogenic bacteria, eliminates them from the intestines and prevents the formation of the so-called travel diarrhea, which occurs due to changes in water, diet, sanitary and climatic conditions during travel.
Due to the dysfunction of the digestive tract, there are pains and cramps in the stomach followed by loose stools, all as a consequence of consuming food or water that is different from the one you are used to at home.
To avoid stomach upset, start giving your child a probiotic three days before the trip. Continue daily administration of the probiotic throughout the trip, and finish it three days after you return from vacation.
In case of diarrhea, Rehydro Kids provides simple, fast and successful rehydration thanks to the efficient mechanism of water, glucose and electrolyte absorption. This reduces the risk of complications due to dehydration. ESPGHAN, the European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition, the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF recommend the use of an oral rehydration solution as the first type of treatment when a child has diarrhea.
Rehydro Kids has a pleasant strawberry taste, so children like to drink it. It dissolves in 200 ml of water (it can also be bottled) and is very easy to administer.
Travel medication to boost immunity
Thanks to the clinically proven mechanism of action of its main ingredient, black elderberry fruit extract, Bimunal protects the body from viral infection and strengthens the immune system.
It blocks the binding of the virus to the cell, as well as its replication if the virus enters the cell, thus preventing viral infection. Black elderberry fruit extract enables a more efficient response to a viral infection by activating the immune system.
First aid in case of injury
Your travel pharmacy should definitely include everything you need to treat some minor injuries. So be sure to pack: sterile bandages and gauze, band-aids, antiseptic wipes, povidone-iodine.
Skin protection on the go
UV protection – It is very important to protect yourself from the sun wherever you go on holiday, especially if you are traveling to the seaside. Choose products that suit children’s skin.
Keep in mind that sunscreen products that are applied to the skin block the sun’s rays, so the process of converting the inactive form of vitamin D into active D3 is disabled. If your child is small, continue to supplement with this vitamin in combination with DHA omega-3 fatty acids through Babytol D3 + DHA Omega.
Insect protection – Depending on the destination and time of year when you travel, your travel pharmacy may also have insect bite protection products, as well as products that alleviate discomfort at the insect bite location.
Elevated temperature on the trip
Just in case, be sure to pack an antipyretic (paracetamol, brufen) and a thermometer in the travel pharmacy.
If the fever occurs due to a viral infection, it is a sign that the child’s immune system is working and that the organism is fighting the infection. That’s why the temperature is rising.
By lowering the temperature, you are giving a signal to the immune system that it does not need to fight. Therefore, the temperature should not be lowered until it exceeds at least 38.5 ° C. Use Bimunal to relieve the symptoms of a viral infection.
Pollen allergy on vacation
Allergic rhinitis occurs during the reproduction of plants and in addition to creating various inconveniences; it also makes breathing difficult for many. Therefore, be sure to bring allergy medications that you normally use, as well as a nasal decongestant.
Spiranto inhalation patches contain essential oils of lavender, mint and eucalyptus, which naturally facilitate breathing and alleviate all the problems that occur due to allergies: stuffy nose, constant runny nose, and sneezing, coughing, swollen, teary and sensitive itchy eyes, itching in the throat.
We wish you a safe journey, and a healthy good time on your vacation!
