Here are the products which we have tried and can reccomend to anyone:

1. If case of a serious problems – do not engage in self-medication and seek for an immediate medical attention! Especially when it comes to children, and / or when the temperature is high.
2. In less serious problems - see below.
Already mentioned betadine. Solution and ointment

Alcohol (not drinking!). Hydrogen peroxide is also available.

Manganese - in here it is called gentian violet

Banocin - powder for open wounds to avoid contamination.

Aobruzzy - topical gel from injuries and sports injuries.

CHLOR PYRAD - ointment for scratches and burns. Heals very quickly.

Bactericidal mesh Bactigras, is applied to the wound under the dressing:

Betnovate-N - cream for skin problems (small sores, scratches and burns from jellyfish)

Bactroban - another remedy for skin burns after jellyfish.

Bet-N - cream for the treatment of ulcers recommended for children

 

Due to climate change, antibiotic treatment, and after frequent use of a pool, many women in Thailand are getting thrush. Canesten - vaginal tablets based on clitrimazol. Clotrimazole cream is also available - and ask the pharmacy using the name of the active substance.

Acyclovir - a remedy for cold sores on the lips, etc.

A solution for washing wounds (as it is used in hospitals for ligation) as well as for storage of lenses.

Valian-X - a soft sedative (an extract of valerian root with high dose)

Being in hot climates and with air conditioners running all over the place it is easy to catch a cold. It is also easy to catch the flu virus from visiting tourists.
But the most difficult here is to cure the cough. Many would cough for a month even with antibiotics.
This version of Strepsils (and perhaps the only one that really helps) is sold only in pharmacies. The others are available in any 7/11.

In Thailand, if you are having a head ache, and generaly any kind of pain they would prescribe Tramal, Tramadol and other counterparts. However, do not rush to take it. Though I did not find it in the list of prohibited substances in Thailand, this drug can be very dangerous. Think carefully before buying.

Idealy would be to consult your doctor so that he could prescribe medication for headaches.
But if you want to do without one, then try some of this:
- BUFLEX ( a dosage of 200, 400 and 600 mg. Main component - ibuprofen)

- Gofen 400 mg. (the main component - ibuprofen)

- Cafergot (helps with migraine, contains ergotamine tartrate 1 mg and 100 mg of caffeine)

When having a high temperatures in Thailand they like to use paracetamol rather than aspirin. This is done for the reason that if the heat is caused by the outbreak of dengue fever, the aspirin will dramatically increase the likelihood of internal bleeding, worsening indicators of blood clotting. Therefore, at high temperatures it is always better to take paracetamol.

 


Great chamomile throat spray. Reduces inflammation at once! For comparison - I used to use a Strepsils spray before (in Thailand it is not for sale), so this one is much more effective.

Throat spray with iodine

Inhaler stick - a real salvation for a starting cold.
Helps with blocked nose, and throat irritation. Helps even with the "pregnancy" and other kinds of nausea.
All different kinds are sold not only in pharmacies, but also in shops such as 7/11


Strepsils Lozenges of local production. I will not recommend it. Sold everywhere, inexpensive (8 pieces - 30 baht), terribly sweet, with a real flu the effect is close to zero.

Vitamin C. Useful thing, even in Thailand, with its abundance of fruit.

Eye-ear drops.
Use it if you got ear infection (the water after a shower + air conditioner and even sometimes a fan, a long ride in a bus with a/c). Cheap and effective. Local production. After opening - a limited shelf life. Also helps for the similar problems with the eyes - inflammation, redness, irritation – works quickly.

 

Decolgen Tablets - triple blow to the symptoms of the common cold. Sold in 7/11.

With imported from Singapore Panadol FluMax (sold in the local 7/11), alas, it can not compare, but it still works.

Another simple and effective means from 7/11 - Disento – helps with any type of diarrhea and intestinal infections.

And one more thing from  7/11 - Dimin - for motion sickness and nausea (5 baht, 2 pcs.). No side effects, such as drowsiness, as some tablets of similar purpose have. I recommend! Helped even after the poisoning.

Activated charcoal is available in Boots pharmacies 10 capsules for 18 baht.

Also in 7/11 you can buy a cooling gel bandage for your forehead - KoolFever.


Another type of candies from a cold.
Effect is 2 on a 5-point scale. Only - less sweet than the Strepsils.

By the way in 7/11 Strepsils is placed next to the sweets. ... It makes sense when you consider how much sugar it has.

Cough syrup.

Cream that is irreplaceable when it comes to an allergic reaction to the bites of mosquitoes, bees, insects, etc.. (This cream I recommend strongly: only be careful when used with children - cream works effectively, so you need to apply quite a bit). Local product, price - 105 baht.
Yet if you are allergic to mosquito bites and to solar radiation I recommend Fenistil gel. Though I would personally prefer Systral cream, it helps a lot better.

Another remedy for mosquito bites is a balm.
Rub the balm to the bite and moisten it with water. This combination have a cooling effect that reduces itching.

From cystitis, which in Thailand happens to women often enough (reasons: the cold tiled floor, intimate hygiene with water from the tap, which is in the municipal water system may not be perfect, and so forth), doctors would usually prescribe antibiotics. Most often - ciprofloxacin.
When it stops working you will probably be prescribed "Omnicef" - an antibiotic of a new generation.
Be prepared that after antibiotic treatment will follow a thrush. How to cure - see above.
Therefore, in the early stages of cystitis one can try simple, inexpensive but effective pills called "Anazo". They are sold 3 baht / unit. Take it up to 3 times a day one tablet strictly after eating.

And a few things (not quite a medicine), which are also sold in pharmacies Samui and is also important for health.
Natural deodorant (so-called "alum").

Lightly moisten the surface with water and apply deodorant on the armpit.
Does not clog pores! No harmful chemicals! And the price is minimal ( from 49 baht).
Sold in Family Mart convenience stores and drug stores (there is more expensive - about 100 baht).


Aloe gel from sunburn. Available in 7/11. Very effective.
However, you can use any gel with aloe.

In addition to the "green" one, there is also a "blue" gel with aloe - it has menthol which gives a cooling effect, which may be necessary in case of a severe sunburn.
But ... even with the easy accessibility and a wide variety of gels that help after a sunburn, it is better to not get burnt at all. Be sure to use sunscreen (you can even get a 130!) natural shade and common sense!

 


Cheers and do not get sick.
