So far we have:

- antiseptic cream
- bite cream
- cold/flu tablets <oink>
- plasters
- ear thermometer

Anything else we need?

(Going to France, btw)

I have no idea, but think your list looks very useful (off camping at the weekend) and thought I'd bump it in case someone has a brainwave.

On my camping trip i just took
ibuprofen
calpol
cough medicine linctus
tixylix night ime cough meddy
inhaler for coughing toddler
absolutly nothing for adults

i would defo take antispetic cream and plasters next time though!

I would also add duck tape for the tent for first aid which i thought your thread ment....

grin Duct tape is a wonderful addition to my list - dh firmly believes in the power of duct tape

I'd also add -
antiseptic wipes
micropore tape and melalin squares
scissors and safety pins (useful for other stuff not just First Aid!)
bandage or 2 and triangular bandage
hay fever medication if necessary

and if you tend to suffer from them - thrush cream/pessaries, athletes foot stuff...I wouldn't fancy my linguistic skills asking for those in a french pharmacy!
