It’s no secret that we Brits like a drink be it on holiday, at the weekend or over the festive season. Drinking often lowers inhibitions and the ability to use common sense or legs properly!
Today’s modern society has seen a rise in ‘Unidentified Drunken Injuries’ (UDIs) with a Facebook page dedicated to the subject with over 58,000 likes.
UDIs, added to the urban dictionary in 2008, refer to those little injuries found the morning after that can’t be explained and may even be embarrassing in the cold light of day. Alcohol-related diseases are commonly reported on, but UDIs, while being a lesser known concept, can also pose risks to health including infection from cuts and grazes and scarring from cigarette burns.
One of the ways health experts recommend combatting any potential problems arising from UDIs is to keep a hangover kit handy.
So, what should a hangover kit contain? Fay Watt, Managing Director of NatraSan, suggests:
A bottle of fresh orange juice to replenish the vitamin C that alcohol depletes
Salty crackers to line the stomach and replace salt
NatraSan First Aid Spray to disinfect minor wounds and aid speedy healing from UDIs
A snap and freeze icepack to cool down a sore head
Mints or a travel toothbrush and paste for a fresher feeling in a dry mouth
“Drunken antics can seem absolutely hilarious at the time and most people know someone with a tale to tell. It may be that there’s no real harm done other than a severe case of embarrassment the next day. However it’s vital to realise the possible health risks associated with UDIs.
“NatraSan First Aid Spray is the perfect hangover kit companion. It can be used safely on cuts, grazes and minor burns so keep a NatraSan Travel Buddy in your bag or by your bedside to disinfect any UDIs that don’t require medical attention.”
