Carry a first aid kit for the Road

botiquín camino de santiago

When we are preparing our backpack keep in mind include a small first aid kit with the essentials. Don´t forget that along the road we will go through different villages and we will have the opportunity to go to the pharmacy in case you need something very specific, or even be able to visit a health center if it was something more serious. But it is desirable to have the basics in your backpack for what might happen.

Blisters, muscle injury, stiffness … These will be the normal pains we will feel, all caused by walking more than usual. With this in mind, our kit could consist of:

  • Betadine disinfectant type.
  • Strips, cotton bandages and tape.
  • A small scissors.
  • Kit for blisters: Needle, thread; sterile syringe and needle and dressings compeed type.
  • Vaseline, salt and rosemary alcohol for foot care.
  • Cream for muscle pain.
  • Anti-inflammatory and analgesic.
  • Baking or pills for heartburn.

Also, do not forget sunscreen especially in the spring and summer, and a mosquito protection.
