What kinds of items should be in your sick-day box?

The idea behind a sick-day box is to have all of your sick-day supplies together in a place you can easily reach for when you do not feel like moving or cannot move very far. Work with your health-care team to personalize your sick-day box to cover all your health needs.

Every sick-day box should have a thermometer to check for fever.
