You need antibiotics.  Although this post is brief, it is very important for you to research this subject.  You must have an emergency medical kit, which includes medications.  Antibiotics should try to be required because, although not good for you when not necessary, they will save lives in the event of the unavailability of medical facilites for an extended time.  In a situation where sanitation is compromised and people have to perform unfamiliar tasks like chopping wood, injury and infection will happen.  Tragically, people have died, even in recent years, from minor infections that could have been contained by a simple antibiotic. 

How to you get antibiotics for your kit?  If you have a good rapport with your doctor, ask them if they will give you a prescription for your emergency kit.  Otherwise, you can get them online.  However, many online pharmacies require a prescription or membership to their site that requires you to purchase regularly.  Instead you may want to try, which is a veterinary pharmacy and supply website.  There is a company called Thomas Labs that makes antibiotics for fish tanks which many people claim are the same substances that go into human prescription capsules, even manufactured in the same facilities.  In addition, they come in proper dosages, like 250mg or 500mg.  On, look for "Antiobiotics" on the left of the page in the menu, and then choose "Tablet & Capsule Antibiotics."  There are many different antibiotics available here; you will find most of what you need.  They are also inexpensive!  Of note: pill forms will last many years past their expiration, but liquids do not.  Also, not all animal drugs transfer to humans, so remember that before you run down to the feed store.  But these in particular may be a great solution for your emergency needs. 

Don't forget to purchase a pharmaceutical guide like this to help you identify the uses of your medications.  Or find other resources of reliable information on usages and dosages to print out and put in an emergency notebook.  It is of extreme importance that you use these drugs CORRECTLY.  Antibiotics are not to be used lightly, and each antibiotic will have a different effect!  Do your research!
