You should always prepare for the worst when you go camping, you will be in an area where you can't reach a drugstore or a doctor very quick and if you carry a well stocked camping first aid kit, you know you will never have to worry about small camping health incidents. You should also ask your camping companions if they use any medicines like inhalers or other incidental products like these.
