Packing our emergency medicine

...for surfing and hiking


Our departure is getting sooner and we are getting more excited. Today we started to pack our emergency medicine. As we will go surfing and a bit of hiking, we decided to focus on cuts, but also malaria medication is in our luggage and some antibiotics in case of... everything ;)
Avoidance is the main point when it comes to diseases like Dengue fever or Malaria. We will use No Bites for skin and clothes and we will also take a travel mosquito net with us. For any kinds of pain, we have paracetamol in our bag. But be careful: do not use it, if you get Dengue fever!! Every medicine that is blood-thining, is counterproductive! Ibuprofen is the agent you should work with. Take a clinical thermother with you to monitor your condition if you feel sick.

In case of deep cuts and no possibility of a hospital/doctor, we choosed stripes as well as desinfection (spray and cream) and rash cream.
Another point could be diarrhea ;). Take care of yourself and put some charcoal tablet and electrolytes.


In any case: visit a doctor/hospital if you are unsure about your health situation! Take care of you & your travel partner and also check your travel insurance!

Stay healthy and if you are prepared, everything will be fine :)
