First Aid Kit for Traveling

In addition to the typical first aid items, like bandages and antibiotic ointment, physicians at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center recommend the following travel items:

  • Resealable plastic bag (use as a makeshift ice bag)
  • Children's Tylenol® (with appropriate dosing information for your child's age and weight)
  • Your pediatrician's phone number
  • Antibacterial scrub or soap, used to clean small abrasions or cuts
  • Electrical outlet covers
