Home and Travel First Aid Kit

With children often happen unforeseen events and then it is good to have the right item at hand quickly.

Tips for travel first aid kit and air travel...

I recommend always having the following items in the home or travel first aid kit:

  • Thermometer
  • Pflaster
  • Medicines for fever and pain
  • Octenisept solution for wound and mucous membrane disinfection (for injuries)
  • Wound and healing ointment (e.g. Bepanthen®)
  • Gel after mosquito bites (e.g. Fenistil®)
  • Nasal decongestant solution or spray (e.g. Nasivin sanft Nasenspray®)
  • Normolyt für Kinder-lösliches Pulver®/ Normolyt for children soluble powder (vomiting or diarrhoea)
  • Antibiophilus Beutel oder Kapseln®/Antibiophilus sachets or capsule (diarrhoea)
  • Possibly lozenges for sore throats
  • Possibly medicine for travel sickness


When travelling by air children often have problems with pressure equalisation at take-off and landing. What can help? You could give something to drink to small children and you could give a chewing gum to older ones. Decongestant nose drops and painkillers in the form of juice or suppositories should be taken on board to give to your child in case it does not stop crying.
