Some doctors for fun say that it is time to force to have at itself first-aid kit not only of motorists, but also summer residents. Far from civilization the people quite often need medicines, and the next health center usually far. However, before summer season and to thrifty gardeners it is worth reviewing contents of country first-aid kit: at something effective life, something superfluous, and much sometimes has expired and is not enough. Therapists advise surely to have approximately following set of the most necessary drugs (specific medicines depend on councils of your attending physician and the size of purse).
Spread out first-aid kit contents in the fridge and cabinet so that in it the stranger could orient quickly. Largely mark effective life on drugs and you watch it regularly.
What needs to be taken to the dacha:
