Your personal first aid kit

Most injuries happen at home. People fall down steps or cut themselves when cooking. So, it’s best to have everything you need close at hand in your first aid kit.

Where to keep it

Where is a suitable place to keep your medicine cabinet? Certainly not in your bathroom: medication and bandages should be stored in a dry, cool room, and definitely out of the reach of children.
