10 Must-Haves for Any Man's Medicine Cabinet

Stock the basics and be ready when you're hit with a headache, heartburn, or an annoying allergy attack.

For nasal congestion due to allergies or early signs of a cold, liquid sprays like Afrin (oxymetazoline)—which get pumped directly into your nose—relieve symptoms without having to pop a pill. Or try a non-medicated netty pot, which flushes salt water in one nostril and out the other, offering some of the same benefits (minus the medication).

Note: Medicated sprays are not meant to be used for longer than three days, Khatri says (overuse could lead to a rebound congestion effect). If symptoms persist, see your MD.
