The swabs are used for the relief of pain and itching of minor burns, sunburn, insect bites, minor skin irritations, and for preparation of the skin before an injection. 5 Johnson & Johnson Hand Cleansing Wipes- These are used to clean hands to prevent contamination, and help remove dirt from hands. 1 Johnson and Johnson containerThis container is used to store swabs, wipes, and band-aids to allow for proper organization in my kit.
  6. 6. Band-Aids  I included various Band-Aid bandages in my kit. The bandages range from different sizes (small to large), and offer both Sheer Strips and Flexible Fabric.
  7. 7. Gauze, Tape, and Gloves     6 Johnson & Johnson Red Cross Gauze Pads- These pads are for all-purpose dressings, and they are used to prep, clean, wipe, absorb, and help protect injuries and wounds. 1 Curad sterile Rolled Gauze- This gauze is used for hard to wrap areas. It secures and protects a dressing without restricting movements. 1 Johnson & Johnson Red Cross Paper Tape- This tape can be used for various reasons, such as, fastening gauzes or dressings. This tape can be used without scissors. 1 pair of Nitrile Patient Examination GlovesThese gloves are non-sterile, and are for a single use only. They can be used to prevent further contamination and infections of injuries or wounds.

It also comes with a storage case.
  10. 10.  Here are a few scenarios in which my First Aid Kit would be handy:    Someone gets stung by a bee- If this happens, I could open my First Aid Kit and grab the anti-itch cream that works well for insect bites. I could give them an Aspirin or Tylenol caplet if water is available. If not, I could use the Urgent RX Fast Powder version of Ache and Pain Relief (which contains Aspirin), and if they have an allergic reaction give them the Allergy Attack Relief version. Someone scrapes a part of their body (knee, arm, etc.)- If this happens, I could grab some Neosporin, gauze, and tape to stop the infection and the bleeding. Also, I could give them a pain reliever (Aspirin or Tylenol). I could use the gloves to stop the spread of infection, and the alcohol wipes to disinfect the area. I could use the band-aids as well to protect the wound. Someone feels like they have a fever- If this happens, I could get out my thermometer and check their temperature. If they do have a fever, I could give them a fever reducer (Aspirin or Tylenol).
