    Does anyone know of a place that sells the small individual packets of antiseptic and antihistamine creams in the UK? I've not been able to find any so far and the cost of shipping them from the US is ridiculous

    I've noticed that meds aren't available and I don't mind too much bc a blister pack doesn't take up much more space. I'd like to have a packet of antiseptic cream in my wallet though

    Wilkos do individual antiseptic wipes in the medicine bit.

    EDIT - they do small antihistamine cream tubes as well for not alot of money.

    Not so much law, as the manufacturers this side of the pond tend to view them as a loss-maker compared to tubes of the stuff, which most people don't use that frequently after opening them, and thus they go 'off' more quickly, generating more sales, or so I've been led to understand (also, given British seasons - I mean, weather - this tends to ring reasonably authentically).

    It's not just the UK, but the almost all of the EU. No one sells sachets of anything medicinal. Not even as part of a first aid/medical kit.
