Summer suggestions for your medicine cabinet

Pools, playgrounds and picnics are all part of summer outdoor fun. When health mishaps happen, over-the-counter remedies can help. To inform your choices, check out the latest Top Recommended Health Products to treat common seasonal issues for kids and adults. Plus, see the following advice from physicians on choosing OTC products for summer health woes.

Allergies and colds

Respiratory conditions such as allergies and colds don't take summer vacations. "We're seeing a lot of seasonal allergies and some asthma flare-ups here and there," says Dr. Natasha Burgert, a pediatrician with a practice in Kansas City, Missouri. For seasonal allergies, "we usually recommend just over-the-counter liquid antihistamines or chewable tablets," she says. "Certainly, pills for our big kids." Steroid nasal sprays can also help. "Most of those are over the counter now, too," she notes. "So we're very fortunate that most of our families can manage seasonal allergy stuff just by going to the pharmacy and not coming to us."

Scar prevention

"Summer is also a time where we see a lot of burns, from fireworks, grilling out and campfires," Burgert says. "Most kids who have significant burns need prescription stuff to start." Kids can also injure themselves on the playground, leading to cuts and lacerations or jagged wounds. Many parents are concerned about scarring. Burgert recommends scar treatments such as Mederma, high-vitamin E products and silicone pads to promote healing and decrease the appearance of the scar. Keeping wounds moist, rather than waiting for scabs to get dry and crusty, is also key. "We keep the road rash and those lacerations and cuts covered with just petroleum jelly, A & D Ointment," or similar products, she says. "Something that keeps them nice and moist during the healing process for better cosmetic outcomes."

Bee stings

Bees and wasps can take the buzz out of outdoor fun. In people who aren't allergic, easing discomfort is the main concern for mild bee stings – and a simple, effective remedy awaits in your freezer. "Ice is very helpful," says Dr. Ethan Lerner, an associate professor of dermatology at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. Cooling off the sting is probably the single most helpful thing to do, he says. Taking an antihistamine to minimize the reaction could also be worthwhile, he says. However, he adds, "The pain usually goes away or decreases so rapidly that taking aspirin, Motrin, Advil, Tylenol or whatever isn't that important to the average person." It is important to take action if you've been attacked by multiple bees. "Some people can get stung by a swarm, and then it's worth going to the hospital, and you might need epinephrine," he says. People who are allergic may need a prescription to carry epinephrine autoinjectors like EpiPens to prevent severe, systemic reactions.

Motion sickness

From lake boat rides and sea cruises to roller coaster thrills at the amusement park, summer is prime time for motion sickness. For some people, all it takes is a road trip or train journey to break out in a sweat and feel queasy, dizzy and nauseated. If being a passenger makes you suffer, motion sickness remedies such as Dramamine and Bonine may help. "We see a lot of motion sickness [in] our younger kids," Burgert says. "Usually, for younger kids, the active ingredient that helps with motion sickness is a derivative of Benadryl – an antihistamine." At ages 10 or older, she says, parents can start to use motion-sickness products for kids. "Motion-sickness bands, like wristbands – a lot of my families really like them as well," she says.
