Hi!
You forgot to include the Benadryl on your list, AND the Epi-Pen where indicated. Also consider a rescue inhaler for anyone with respiratory issues, or be sure they have their own.
My most frequently used item is Artificial Tears, which now can be found in single dose vials. Consider latex free bandaids (available in the Pacific NW at the Fred Meyers Stores, their store brand- I have no connection to Fred Meyers).
SAM splint, a foam covered thin aluminum splint, is also a good item though bulky. Need pretty good scissors to cut it but can make finger splints or bend it for long bone injuries.
I'm sure others have other suggestions.

is one of my favourite OTC medications.... get the rapid dissolve in your mouth variety - onset is quicker (not fast, but quicker than the capsule). I always carry it. It is also good for nausea.... yeah, it might make ya sleepy - but it works.
Albuterol inhaler is a good idea, too.
So .... don't forget to include it in your kit :)
