Is this your first year at College? Are you going to be a distance from home? Or are you Mom and worried that you will not be there when minor illness or cuts and scrapes happen? I have for you a list of all you need to make a College Dorm Room First Aid Kit.
Nothing in this post is intended as medical advice. These are just suggestions of items you can get at any store that sells first aid items. These are only suggestions of items you may use already and you may want to think if your student will need them based on your medical professional’s advice. Any content, image or photo are not intended to give any medical advice, just a friendly reminder of what you may or may not have on your list of things to take to college. Please contact your doctor if you have any concerns about using any item shown here for your student.
