This is an except from my blog on things to consider packing when getting sx overseas: Things to add to my shopping list before my trip: (All of these things I got from other blog spots! I would have to spend a small fortune to buy all of this stuff but I thought it might be helpful for everyone if I just listed everything I have compiled from all of my info gathering. Do your research to find what is right for you.) Feminine wipes and Baby wipes Bacitracin (Neosporin) Large bandaids Diurex (Water pills) Arnica Mederma/ Bio Oil Vitamins (vitamin C, iron) Backless Shower shoes/ Flip Flops Antibacterial soap Gold Bond Anti-itch cream or Benadryl cream (or tablet for anti itching and sleep) Stool softener (A must I heard, nothing to harsh though. Flax seed oil works for me!) A reputable firming lotion (3D Shaper, All Over Body Firming and Tightening Cream, Clinically Approved. Immediate Skin Tightening Effect) Tylenol pm and Tylenol Extra strength Dermoplast (Spray on pain relief) Hibiclens (I heard it can be very harsh! Beware!) Hand sanitizer Boppy Pillow (A must to protect that butt) Toilet seat "Soft seat" cover (For your home toilet) Disposable Gloves Maxi pads w/o wings (for garment, to prevent irritation burns) Tampons for menstral cycle Bromalien (Pinaple extract pills to reduce swelling) Arnica tablets (Combats inflammation and pain) Foam board back and abdomen (Crutial for swelling) Epifoam Ace wrap "Wife beater tees" to wear under the garment Silicone Scar vanishing sheets/ Strips Example of what these can do for you: http://www.rejuveness.com/Before-and-After-Straight-Line-Scar-Pictures-c143.html Happy shopping!

I would check Amazon.com type in "VitaMedica Bromelain with Quercetin, 60 caps" and for the silicone strips they are on there too but the makers of the "Rejuveness" brand have their own website: http://www.rejuveness.com. Good Luck!!!
