Festival advice

SCOTLAND’S national telehealth organisation is urging music lovers in Tayside going to T in the Park to look after their health.

NHS 24 is advising the musical festival goers to be prepared by taking a few essential items in case they become unwell.

Medical Director Professor George Crooks said: “Take some over-the-counter medication with you for stomach upsets or diarrhoea and remember antiseptic cream is good for bites, stings and cuts. It is also important to have sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher and antiseptic hand gel is always handy to have at outdoor events.”

“Plan ahead and take some condoms with you to protect you from sexually transmitted infections. Also tampons, wet wipes and hay fever medication will always come in handy over the weekend. And don’t forget to take your asthma inhaler or any prescription medicine you need with you.”
