We've got six of our favorite outdoor safety and emergency products below to get your started! Mountainside Medical Equipment has all your first aid and safety needs!
At the top of anyone's summer checklist is a quality sunscreen. Safetec Sunscreen Lotion is SPF 30, reaching doctor-recommended standards for sun protection. Containing zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, this sunscreen should be applied liberally every 2 hours, or every 60-90 minutes if you're sweating excessively or swimming. Safetec Suncreen Lotion comes in a convenient travel-size packet form that's perfect to carry with you wherever you go -- camping, the beach, the park, even just a walk around the neighborhood. We've got these available at a great discount for a limited time, so stock up today!
Outdoor injuries increase in summer, and burns are no exception: fire pits, campfires, and fireworks can all cause serious burns when things go wrong. It's always a great idea to keep a proper burn cream on hand when you're doing anything with fire, and one of our favorites is Silver Sulfadiazine Cream! This is an effective, soothing, antimicrobial cream that is ideal for preventing and treating second and third degree burns and preventing infection. It works on both humans and animals, making it a common choice for both hospitals and veterinarians' offices. Make sure you're prepared for burns with Ascend Silver Sulfadiazine Cream!
If you've been camping or hiking, there's a good chance you've come into contact with one of the "poison" plants -- poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac -- that cause allergic reactions on contact. Medi-First Ivy-Rid Spray is a topical spray designed to relieve the itching and discomfort associated with these plants, as well as insect bites and minor skin irritations. Available in a 3 oz spray bottle, Ivy-Rid not only alleviates pain and irritation, but also prevents against infection. Bring it with you whenever you hit the trails this summer!
Poison plants aren't the only danger to your skin in the summer -- anyone who's spent time outside knows how irritating insect bites can be. Perrigo's Hydrocortisone Lotion 2.5% is an anti-inflammatory lotion that is used to treat inflammation of the skin from allergic reactions, eczema, or psoriasis. Hydrocortisone lotion relieves itching and irritation almost immediately and moisturizes your skin when it's applied, making it ideal for anyone suffering from inflammation due to insect bites or poison plants!
You can't always avoid allergens like ragweed and you might not spot poison ivy in time, but you can deter insects before they bite. Safetec Insect Repellant is a non-toxic, chemical free, pesticide free repellent that uses natural citronella and soybean oil to drive off insects. It contains no DEET, and is perfect for adults or children with sensitive skin. Available in a convenient, portable, 2 oz. bottle, this is the perfect option for hikers, campers, and anyone spending time outdoors this summer!
