31 Essential Items Everyone Needs to Have in Their Home First-Aid Kit

For itches and rashes

  • Calamine lotion
  • Hydrocortisone cream, lotion for itching

For allergies

  • Antihistamines

For snakebites

  • Unmedicated bandage
  • Scissors
  • Venom extraction pump
  • Tourniquet
  • Disposable scalpel
  • Ammonia inhalants

Note: First-aid is not a cure for snakebites. The key to surviving a venomous snakebite is to get an antivenom as soon as possible. If you get bitten, stay calm. If possible take a photograph of the snake for easy identification.

Call emergency responders (911 in the US, 999 in the United Kingdom, and 000 in Australia).
