  • Sterile pads, bandages and cotton, as well as an antiseptic.
  • Scissors, tweezers, thermometer and antibacterial wash.
  • Basic over-the-counter products, such as a pain reliever, decongestant and motion-sickness medication.
  • Sunscreen and bug spray.
  • Anti-diarrhea medication and an antacid.
  • Toilet paper and a clean washcloth.
