Magees Travel Guide


As we are now reaching peak time for travelling, we have put together a checklist to help you remember all you need to pick up from the pharmacy before travelling. Usually the illnesses we develop on holidays aren’t that serious however they can cause problems because we are a distance away from medical help or there may be a language barrier. Anyone who is on regular medication & hoping to travel for a longer period of time is advised to see their GP to get a prescription suitable for their stay.

Sunscreen – As much as we all love the sun kissed look, we need to be really careful in protecting ourselves from the strong rays of sun while travelling abroad. Using a sunscreen with a high protection factor (SPF) will enable you to enjoy the sun in a safe, healthy way & prevent you against skin damage caused by the sun. There are a variety of sunscreen products on our shelves including creams, sprays & oils. Should you need any advice in choosing a certain product speak to any of our pharmacists who will be happy to help. Oh, & don’t forget the aftersun, a cream or gel with aloe vera may alleviate any redness & act as a cooling agent after sunbathing.

Travel sickness
Whether you’re travelling by car, sea or air the nausea feeling/ travel sickness experienced by many of us can be relieved with the aid of tablets available over the counter containing cinnarizine commonly known to us as Stugeron & hyoscine tablets also known as Kwells. These tablets have a few restrictions on them & our Pharmacists will be more than happy to talk to you regarding their suitability. Ginger is another known “cure” for travel sickness & has the added advantage of not causing drowsiness. Wristbands are also available which operate by applying pressure on the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist.

Vomiting/ Diarrhoea
These are two of the most common ailments we are faced with while on holidays/ travelling. Vomitting can be caused by a number of factors however, the main reason is often the different food we consume that causes us upset. Motilium tablets are available over the counter to help relieve this problem and as with Diarrhoea it’s important to remember to take fluids regularly to replace those lost to prevent dehydration. Dioralyte sachets are easily packed & handy to have for rehydrating yourself. Over the counter medicines such as Arrett, & Imodium are effective in the relief of Diarrhoea, however a lot of these medications are not suited to children & advice from your pharmacist is the practical step to help alleviate these uncomfortable travelling ailments.

Painkillers are a must for anyone travelling. Paracetamol, Aspirin, & Ibuprofen will assist with all common pain types whether its headaches, muscle pain, toothache, menstrual pain etc. Loose or effervescent tablets may absorb moisture from the air & become ineffective therefore it is advised to buy blister packs. If you’re travelling with children, we would strongly advise you to carry Calpol/Nurofen to reduce fever & relieve pain which can be a frequent occurrence with children of a young age.

Best prevented with a high-fibre diet & fluids. Products such as Dulcolax or Senokot are available in tablet/liquid form to relieve constipation, however high fibre diet treatment is recommended with medication only being used as a temporary measure.

Heart burn & stomach acid
A daily discomfort for many & unfortunately holidays are no exception Zantac, Pepcid AC, Gaviscon, Bisodol, Rennies are some of the helpful remedies available on consultation with our pharmacy staff.

Sores & Blisters
Basic items such as plasters, bandages, disinfectant wipes & sprays will come in useful for these problems.

Hayfever/ Skin Allergies
Probably one of the most common irritating problems we’re faced with on holidays. Products available over the counter are Piriton, Clarityn, Zirtek, Cetrine, & Zirpine to help relieve hayfever, insect bites, skin allergies & food allergies. If you’re unfortunate to be bitten severely on holidays & the swelling/ pain does not feel normal please check with a health professional in your holiday area as more extensive treatment may be required.

Condoms are still the best way of reducing the chance of unwanted pregnancy or contracting a sexual transmitted disease & are available in all pharmacies.

Insect spray/ Repellent
Having insect repellent on hand whether it’s spray, lotion or roll on is minimizing the risk of suffering mosquitoe, midges & other biting insects. Jungle formula is one of the most reliable products available on the market, with the Extra Strength formulation containing Deet for maximum insect repellent strength.

We hope this guide helps you to finalise all your holiday health essentials & if you’ve any queries feel free to call in to the pharmacy or call us on 07491-21409 to speak to one of our Pharmacists or trained advisors.

Happy Holidays!
