Create a Home First Aid Kit

Emergencies can prepare for one by making a first aid kit.A first aid kit can be
1. Choose a nice sized container. It needs to be large enough to store the materials.
2. Store it an easily accessed locale in your home. Teach your children and frequent house guests where the first aid kit is stored.
3. Fill the box will the following sterile and/or newly-bought items:
* Adhesive dressings, of varied size and shape, from regular Band-Aid shapes to small squares to large
* Small (but sharp) scissors
* A package of gauze pads. They can be large, because you can always cut them if necessary.
* Adhesive tape (Not like cellophane tape)
* Cotton Balls, large and small, or tampons
* Rubbing non-Alcohol wipes for cleaning external surfaces only (i.e. cleaning dirt off of unbroken skin, or wiping down a surface)
* Antibiotic Ointment, for keeping the infection out of cuts, scrapes, etc.
* A thermometer
* Tweezers for pulling out splinter
* Latex or vinyl gloves, in case of blood,body fluids and dangerous waste to keep two pairs for the smallest kit
* A bee sting kit
* Insect Repellant
* sterile dressings(a sterile pad attached to a roller bandage)
* roller bandages
* triangular bandages
* sterile saline
* CPR breathing mask
* safety pins and bandage clips
4. you can use these items, if you have no supplies in an emergency:
* sticks for splints
* cloth for bleeding,slings.
* Water,to clean wounds and eyes.
* You can also use a store bought kit and and add other items like alcohol or hydrogen peroxide, cotton balls,extra bandages and a thermometer.
* Cotton swabs are optional
* For antibiotic ointment, Neosporin is recommended, because it does not sting the cut.
*CPR being performed
You could save a life by learning first aid.Go to Your local red cross or other organisation.
* Blue items are available for kitcens ECT.


* Wash tweezers, scissors, and thermometer after each use.
* Be aware of what you use and don't let supplies get low!
* Be sure everyone who would potentially use the kit is not allergic to any of the ingredients.
* Do not store prescriptions in the first aid kit,items such as an epipen are all right though

Cure a Stomach Ache

A stomach ache is one of the more annoying things in life, especially when you have things to do. Here are some things you can do to get rid of them.
Please Follow These Steps
1. Eat if you think it might be related to hunger!
2. Try to go to the bathroom.
3. Your feet must be in a higher level than the rest of your body, put some pillows below ur feet and the ache will go away.
4. Eat an herb which aids digestion, such as ginger (ginger-ale, or ginger snaps), peppermint (gum and candy cane as long as it is real peppermint) or Aloe Vera Juice (an anti-parasitic that tastes terrible but aids digestion). Similar herb teas that help digestion include mint, ginger or chamomile tea.
5. Place a heating pad on your abdomen to give temporary relief.
6. Lie down for a few minutes and relax.
* Close your eyes.
* Place a cool moist washcloth over your forehead.
* Breath slowly and evenly, trying to keep your mind off of the pain.
7. Sip a glass of iced water slowly.
8. Eat bland foods; crackers, bread, rice, etc. Sometimes stomach aches are caused by too much acid floating around in your stomach with nothing to do. These foods will help absorb the acid to make things a little more comfortable. Also, you may just be hungry!
9. Avoid spicy or fast foods, heavy foods, rich desserts till your stomach balances out.
10. Drinking black coffee tends to aid the digestive process.
11. Try a Tums. Especially the fruit kind.
12. If you are a girl, it might be your period coming or recurring.
13. Drink some flat lemonade
14. Try carbonated beverages such as ginger ale, carbonated mineral water (mix with juice to add flavor), or tonic water (with quinine, tastes horrible but works!)
15. Try lying on your stomach to ease the pain.

Over-The-Counter Medications
1. Take over-the-counter medications like Gas-ex to relieve the pressure from gas build up.
2. Allow yourself to pass gas, even if you are in polite company. It may be somewhat embarrassing, but you do not want to allow yourself to become bloated or let the cramps become more serious and painful. Also, go into another room such as the bathroom to pass gas if you do not want to be embarrassed.
3. Take a mild laxative to encourage a bowel movement for relief.
4. Try Emitrol or Imodium to relieve cramps associated with diarrhea. Pepto-Bismol may help some stomach related pains, along with other OTC products. Check labels in the drug store or ask the pharmacist for their advice.
5. Do not stop taking medication prescribed by your doctor. All medications should be taken unless the doctor indicates otherwise.
1. Notice any food that may disagree with your digestion. Some people are not tolerant of different foods, so if you often suffer from cramps, keep a food diary and try to determine if there is an association with a certain food or group of foods and your stomach cramps.
* Milk and milk products may cause cramps and stomach pain in persons who are lactose intolerant. This includes, cheese, milks, yogurts, milk shakes, milk chocolate, etc. Some people have issues with cheese but may be tolerant of milk or vise versa.
* Failing to drink sufficient liquids may cause stomach and muscle cramps.
* Eating an excessive amount of non-soluble fiber may cause cramps associated with constipation.
* Some people are sensitive to uncooked vegetables and fruits, particularly if the peels are not removed.
* Avoid consuming harsh substances such as acidic pops and juices, alcohol, and spicy foods. If something is really wrong in there, these could irritate it and make it worse.
2. Look into the possibility you suffer from Crohn's Syndrome, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and seek medical treatment if this is the case.
3. Consider stress as a possible cause of stomach pain or cramps. If the condition coincides with stressful situations, try to avoid stress as much as possible, and look at learning stress management techniques.
4. Realize anti-inflammatory medications (Advil, Aleve, Naprosin, etc), antibiotics, vitamins, birth control pills and many other medications can cause upset stomach, nausea or stomach pains. Unless your doctor specifies you should take on an empty stomach you should always take with food. Medications that cause you more serious upset should be taken on a full stomach and not just crackers or a piece of toast.
5. Document your symptoms if they persist. Write down what foods you ate, snacks, beverages, other medications taken that day, vitamins, stressing events. You may be able to determine the cause.
do this tips
* Try your best not to think about your stomach, sometimes just forgetting about it will make it go away.
* If you experience pain after eating a meal - try drinking only before you start eating, drinking liquids makes it harder to digest food.
* One old trick is to drink sugar salt water. To make this all you have to do is get a glass of water, and put about a teaspoon of salt and sugar in the water. It tastes nasty, but a lot of times it works wonders. If it doesn't work, it isn't your normal stomach ache.
* A white soda pop may help you burp away some of the discomfort especially if it is trapped stomach gases.
* Try holding a piece of ice - it will take all of the concentration off your stomach.
* Try pushing on your stomach and if it makes a gurgling noise, it means you probably have gas.
* Try drinking peppermint tea. It coats your stomach.
Remember,Don't !!
* Don't starve yourself to "make it go away", chances are it'll get worse.
* If you have bad heartburn as well, mint could irritate.
* Stomach pain may be a symptom of a serious medical condition like food poisoning or allergies. If you experience fever, severe nausea, or sweating, seek medical help.
* Prolonged or frequent cramps, especially associated with loose stools or diarrhea may indicate a serious medical condition.
* Diarrhea associated with stomach cramps may cause dehydration, which can lead to shock or even death. Drink an electrolyte solution like Pedialyte, or a clear, low carbohydrate sports drink frequently if you experience diarrhea for an extended period of time.

How to Aid a Sick Family Member

Every year many people get sick from common viruses. Sometimes it's someone you have to care for. Here's how you could help them.
