    Savlon vs Germolene vs Neosporin vs Chloramphenicol

    I use neat tea-tree oil. Is a very effective anti-bacterial + anti-fungal. Also very good at stopping itching from bites. During WW2 it used to be issued to Aussie troops in Buma/Far East to combat jungle sores.

    Blood pressure monitors

    Been using the Lloyds Pharmacy one for a few years - works well, seems reasonably accurate. Batteries last for ages. Think Boots might do one too.
