Got any Tylenol?

As I lay here sick in bed, the topic of travel first aid seemed appropriate, though ironic.  At minimum, I take a full prescription of antibiotics, 4 doses of nyquil, 4 doses of dayquil, a small bottle of acetaminophen and ibuprofen, a small ace bandage, bacitracin, band-aids of various sizes, a couple of sterile pads, alcohol swabs and an itch stick.  If you’re prone to sunburns, you might want to take a mini bottle of aloe (and some sunscreen, of course). I’ve never needed more than these items, plus a little ductape, on my travels.  I know you can get acetaminophen or it’s equivalent pretty much anywhere in the world, but sometimes it’s comforting to have the brand you are familiar with.
