First Aid Kit for Camping [Infographic]

Camping is all fun and games until an accident occurs. It's easy to get a minor injury while enjoying the outdoors, and often, such accidents are unavoidable. In these scenarios, the best thing you can do is be prepared with a first aid kit for camping.

In this infographic, we're outlining the tools, medicines, and health items you should pack in a first aid kit. While you can always bring more first aid items, this kit contains the things you'll need to care for most minor injuries encountered while camping.

First Aid Kit for Camping

1. Bandages, Gauze, and Tape

Bandages of various sizes will come in handy. You should also bring gauze pads or a gauze roll, as well as medical tape.

2. Instant Ice Pack

An instant ice pack will keep the swelling down on a bruised knee or a sprained ankle.

3. Antiseptic Rinse

An antiseptic rinse, such as hydrogen peroxide or iodine, will disinfect minor cuts and abrasions. Use a soaked cotton ball to wash the wound.

4. Antibiotic Ointment

After disinfecting a cut or abrasion, apply antibiotic ointment before bandaging the wound to prevent an infection.

5. Hydrocortisone Cream

If you develop a rash, eczema, or hives, hydrocortisone cream can work wonders. It can also be used on minor insect bites.

6. Sunburn Relief

Sunscreen should always be an essential for camping trips. Additionally, bring sunburn relief, such as aloe vera gel, in case you get burnt.

7. Pain Relievers

For headaches and minor pains, bring over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and naproxen.

8. Allergy Medication

Whether you suffer from seasonal allergies or allergies to insect stings, it's wise to bring an allergy medication such as Benadryl, Zyrtec, or Claritin.

9. Stomach Medicine

It's common to get an upset stomach while traveling. To stave off issues, pack anti-diarrheal, anti-nausea, and antacid medicines in your first aid kit.

10. Tweezers, Scissors, And Knife

Your first aid kit should contain tweezers, scissors, and a small knife. You can also include safety pins, if desired. With these suggestions, you have exactly what you need for a first aid kit for camping. While you can create your own kit, you can also purchase a pre-packaged first aid kit from the Red Cross.
