Home pharmacy

Prepare a small home pharmacy or a first aid kit to be able to take care of wounds or other ailments. Keep in mind that medicines do not last forever. Therefore, do not stock up on unnecessarily large quantities, and keep track of the best-before date. Remember that medicine must always be stored out-of-reach of children.
