Traditional Health and Safety tips

We have also listed some traditional health and safety tips which involve using every day household items found around your average college apartment or student house.

  • Bee sting? Place a cut onion on the affected area. An ingredient in the onion will break down the chemical that causes the swelling and pain.
  • Tongue burn? suck on an ice cube to cool it down.
  • Sore Throat? Honey naturally coats the throat and helps to reduce any inflammation.
  • Paper cut? Apply some chap-stick to heal that the cut right up
  • Minor burn? Apply cool water to take the heat away, while numbing it.
  • Blood test? looking away and breath normally.
  • Fly in your eye? Fill a bowl, big enough to fit your face, with water. Put your face in and open your eyes.
  • Got a headache? Place your hands and feet in warm water and apply an ice pack to the back of your neck and head.
  • Telephone Numbers – keep a list of local medical service numbers in your phone. They maybe help to you and others during the student year.
