While Wikitravel is not a medical encycopedia, the following topical article offers some suggestions for a First aid kit for travellers. You may not be able to purchase, or even require all the items on this list, and in some cases you may need a doctor's prescription to avoid having the items confiscated by border police or customs officers if your bags are inspected. If in doubt, consult a competent medical professional for advice.
