I'm Sick and I'm Not Home


You're on vacation and you get sick.

What do you do?

Be prepared by packing a few treatment items. I don't mean pack the entire medicine cabinet. A few basics will go a long ways. Don't forget to check your insurance to see what is covered when you're away from home.

Include these:

Antihistamine
Pain or fever reducers like acetaminophen, ibuprofen, aspirin
Antacid
Diarrhea medication
Motion sickness medication

Also include:

Spare pair of contact lens or eyeglasses
Extra prescription medications
Your health insurance card
Your physician's name and phone number

If you're really sick, you may need to contact a health professional.
