Self care

Self-care is the best choice to treat minor illnesses, ailments and injuries.

A range of common illnesses and complaints such as aches and pains, cough, colds, upset stomachs and sore throats can be treated with over the counter medicines and plenty of rest.

It’s a good idea to have these essentials at home:

  • Paracetamol, aspirin and ibuprofen
  • Rehydration mixtures
  • Indigestion remedies
  • Plasters
  • Thermometer
