1. Johnson & Johnson All-Purpose First Aid Kit (FSA/HSA Eligible)

We love this first aid kit! It’s compact yet has everything you need for minor cuts, scrapes, burns, itches, skin rashes, and more. It is ideal for home, cars, outdoors, dorm rooms, camping, or classrooms.

Review: Looked up these kits to serve as portable units to toss into our car. When I saw how many things it had for the money I instantly bought 3 more to have one in each car. Good value for safety items. – Amazon Customer


2. Cortisone 10 Plus Ultra Moisturizing Anti-Itch Cream (FSA/HSA Eligible)

This 2oz cortisone is the perfect travel sized cream to handle eczema, sunburn, dry and itchy skin. It also has 10 nourishing ingredients which helps keep your skin moisturized to help make your skin feel softer.

Review: I’ve purchased this for years and will keep buying only this brand. On applying it, any itch I have from Poison Ivy, to a bug bite, or rash instantly calms down. It doesn’t dry my skin, nor is it greasy. Just a little goes a long way and it works on contact on any itches or dry skin rash. It’s the only brand I’ll buy. Amazon Customer

3. Neosporin Original First Aid Antibiotic Ointment (FSA/HSA Eligible)

This antibiotic ointment is a must-have for any minor cut or wound. It nourishes the skin while also minimizing the appearance of scars after healing.

Review: This product works well. I have been using it for a long time. It has always kept infection away. This is a sheer ointment, so you may want to cover your skin with a band aid after applying to minimize the spreading of the ointment on clothes or bed sheets. However, I’ve used the product without a band aid and was fine.Amazon Customer

4. Welly Kids Bravery Badges Assorted Monster Flex Fabric Bandages (FSA/HSA Eligible)

We love these kids’ bravery badges – they are colorful which makes them fun for your little ones! We love their flexible fabric, so they stay on even for the most active kids.

Review: This is the first brand of Band-Aids my whole family agrees on. Either brands aren’t sticky enough and fall off easily or they are extremely secure and are painful to take off. My kids don’t throw a fit when I pull this brand out because it isn’t painful when it comes time to take them off. Worthy the extra money so everyone is happy and healing!Amazon Customer

5. Dermoplast First Aid Spray (FSA/HSA Eligible)

This spray gives you fast pain relief plus antiseptic protection. Use to stop pain on contact in minor scrapes, cuts, & burns.

Review: I use this on burns and other injuries. Excellent pain relief. A little spray and kids forget they have ouchies. My burns stop hurting immediately. Excellent item to have nearby as first aid.
