Minor Ailments

If you have a common health problem, a trip to your local pharmacy is an option.

Your pharmacist may be able to help with:

  • skin conditions, such as mild acne and mild eczema
  • coughs and colds,  including nasal congestion and sore throat
  • minor cuts and bruises
  • constipation and haemorrhoids (piles)
  • hay fever and allergies
  • aches and pains, such as headaches, earache and backache
  • indigestion, diarrhoea and threadworms
  • period pain and thrush
  • warts and verrucas, mouth ulcers and cold sores
  • athlete’s foot 
  • nappy rash and teething

Some pharmacies can provide truss fittings, stoma products and incontinence supplies.

Current guidelines state that antibiotics have no effect on the common cold and therefore will not be prescribed.
