Cuts and scrapes can occur from all sorts of everyday activities. While some wounds require a trip to the doctor’s office, many wounds can be treated at home, especially minor wounds. A minor wound is small cut or scrape that can be cleaned with little help and its edges meet easily.
There are lots of reasons you might need a medical kit at home. Scraped knees, headaches and sore throats can all be treated at home with simple supplies. Here are tips on items to keep in your own kit. Make sure to keep your medical kit in a place that is easy to get to, but out of reach of small children.
Nearly all headaches experienced by college students are Tension-Type headaches. Tension-Type headaches may be caused by tightening muscles in the back of the neck and/or scalp.

This causes a backup of oil and dead cells, resulting in acne.
