After a long and grueling Winter, Summer is finally upon us all again. School is out for the kids, the heat is high, the pools are open, and everyone is enjoying life in flip flops, tank tops, and shorts! What could possibly be better?
Here, at Mountainside Medical, we love our Summer days and want all of our customers to enjoy them too! We've compiled a list of our top 10 favorite products that are essential to have for this fun and beautiful season!
1. First Aid Kits
In case of an emergency, a First Aid Kit is something that everyone should carry with them to assist their family members, friends, and even furry friends, in times of an unexpected crisis. Be prepared wherever, whenever - whether on-the-go, or at home, by having one of our many fabulous kits available to you at the click of a button!
The Summer sun brings enormous amounts of beauty and warmth, but it can also bring an enormous amount of pain as well. Before going outside to enjoy the sun, protect yourself and your family by applying sunscreen to your skin. With so many types of sunscreen on the market, how do you know what one is right for you?
Well, as we previously discussed in our sunburn prevention blog, your sunscreen lotion should have an SPF of at least 30, be water resistant, and protect against both UVA and UVB rays. We have several terrific brands of sunscreen, ranging from SPF 15 to SPF 50, that are all waterproof and provide protection against UVA and UVB rays.
Aloe is one of the best treatments for sunburn. It soothes the pain from not only sunburn, but other minor burns, bites, cuts, and irritations; it brings moisture back to your skin; and it cools down your body instantly! This particular product, Solarcaine Burn Gel, is one of the most powerful gels for sunburn treatment. Containing 0.5% Lidocaine and extra Aloe Vera, Solarcaine has been tested by doctors, and proven to be the #1 sunburn relief brand!
4. Insect Repellent
When enjoying a summer cookout, a bonfire, a round of golf, or taking that annual family camping trip, the last thing anyone wants to do is worry about pesky insects that love to invade on your fun! That's why we recommend using any form of insect repellent to keep the bugs away, all day and all night! Our favorite is the Coleman 100% DEET Insect Repellent because it provides maximum protection against mosquitos, fleas, ticks, gnats, and biting flies for up to 10 hours! This is the strong stuff!
5. Poison Ivy Relief
Hiking, camping, and outdoor activities in general are all part of the summertime experience! Unfortunately, so are nasty rashes, such as poison ivy. Ivy-Dry Continuous Spray provides the ultimate relief of itching and pain from Poison Ivy, Oak, Sumac, and even insect bites. This spray contains four active ingredients to control itching: benzyl alcohol, camphor, menthol, and zinc acetate, and is fast acting. For more information, check out our Ivy Dry product page!
6. Claritin Non-Drowsy Allergy Medicine
Allergies don't take a break just because it's summertime. In fact, for some, their allergies worsen due to various pollens or dust in the air. When your allergies begin to act up, you need fast, lasting relief that won't make you drowsy and interfere with your everyday life. That's why we love Claritin. Claritin is a non-drowsy allergy medication that provides 24 hour relief of your agonizing symptoms, so that you can breathe easier and feel better!

7. Ventolin HFA Inhaler
Much like our allergies, asthma and respiratory illness does not stop in the Summer months. For some, the heat and dry air make their condition worse, and makes it harder for them to breathe. Ventolin HFA Inhaler is an albuterol inhaler for asthma, with a built in dose counter. This does require a prescription from your doctor, as they will know the correct dosage to prescribe you. This inhaler relaxes muscles in the airways and increases air flow to the lungs. To purchase this product, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 1-888-687-4334
8. Cortizone 10 Intensive Healing Eczema Lotion
During the hot and humid months, eczema can often become more of a nuisance and cause more discomfort. Cortizone 10 Intensive Healing Eczema Lotion is designed to stop all of that. This lotion is specifically designed to provide immediate relief from the itch and discomfort associated with eczema, all while helping to heal the skin. Cortizone 10 is one of our more popular products because of the unique cream formulation. This product contains 7 intensive moisturizers, plus Restora - a botanical and vitamin complex that helps soothe and heal eczema. There's no need to suffer with dry, itchy, or painful skin any longer. Try a lotion that is dermatologist recommended for superior eczema relief!
9. Neosporin Maximum Strength Pain Reliever - Antibiotic Cream
Bumps, scrapes, bruises, and cuts, inevitably, they happen - especially during the summertime months when everyone is out to play! What do you do to prevent infection? You apply Neosporin Maximum Strength Pain Relief Antibiotic Cream. Doctor recommended, this cream not only offers infection protection, but can provide pain relief as well.
10. Bactine First Aid Antiseptic & Pain Relief
One of our top trending items, Bactine Antiseptic is a first aid supply designed to kill germs, protect against infection, and provide pain relief. This product goes to work as soon as it is applied, and kills harmful bacteria without the sting of hydrogen peroxide. The combination of pain relief and antiseptic helps to heal minor injuries instantly.
