First aid for ailments


Everyone has a day when they don’t feel well. You are not immediately ill, but little comes out of your hands. A number of common ailments have a simple solution.

For clarity. Do you have symptoms such as fever, dry cough, fatigue, shortness of breath, chest pain or pressure, or sore throat. Then let yourself be tested on Covid-19!


Headaches can have various causes. When you have “normal” headaches, you may have been drinking too little. Drink a few glasses of water and the headache will slowly ease. Due to the shortage of fluid in your brain, these press against your skull. That causes the headache.

In migraine it is good to take a shower in the dark. Run the warm water over your head, relax and breathe easy. Your headache can of course also be caused by an evening sagging. You then have a significant hangover. Vitamin C breaks down the alcohol and also drinks a lot of water, which ensures that your brain gets enough moisture again.

Cold sore

Your new love is coming this week, but oh well, you have a cold sore. Do not panic! Take a cotton ball with white vinegar and dab the blisters. This can sting a little, but it disinfects and disinfects well.

Bad breath

Of course you want a breath of fresh air at school, at work and when going out. Nothing is more annoying than talking to someone who has bad breath. If you drink water regularly, you will notice that you are less bothered by bad breath. Do not forget to brush your tongue after brushing your teeth. Most bacteria that cause bad breath are on your tongue.


Would you like to scream at the concert of your favorite artist? You probably have to pay by being hoarse for a few days. Boil half a liter of water and add two tablespoons of honey to it. Take the juice of a lemon and add this too. Let this mixture cool and take small sips throughout the day.

Mosquito bite

In summer, unsightly stings can cause quite an itch. To relieve the itching, place a cloth with vinegar on the mosquito bump. Keeping the spot cool also helps against the itching.

Tired eyes

After a long day of study, you want to do something fun in the evenings. But your eyes are tired and you don’t feel very fit. Take two chamomile tea bags and put them in boiling water. Let them cool and put them on your eyes for about ten minutes.

Throwing up

Vomiting is never fun. Certainly not if you are going to spit bile. To stop this, take a glass with a tablespoon of sugar. You carefully pour in some cola. You wait until the mixture has completely stopped effervescence. Then you take small sips.

Stuffy nose

A stuffy nose is tricky, but all those sprays and drops aren’t good for your nose. Take a cup of hot water and add a few teaspoons of table salt to it. Let the salt water cool down well. Then you can drip the salt water into your nose with a pipette.
