and welcome wag down the pharmacy aisle looking for the right product can be quite the daunting ially when you have a splitting headache or small children. so how do you know what's best for you? fear not. the pharmacy times have gotten tother to rank the best over the counter products and we're revealing them exclusively with the help of medical contributor dr. natalie azar. >> good morning again. >> how did this list come ? together >> this is a sur vaif that pharmacists do every year. and they're basically ranking their favorite products based on their experience, how efficacious, how safe these all are. and really, they look at -- they
8:27 am
survey over 800 different products. >> and these are brand names this morning. >> not store. and there's value for store, but for the pharmacists there's a consistency, there's an identity wibr these ds. and, you know, patients feel confident in them. >> let's get too the list here. this fst one was surprising because i thought that advil was not great for your stomach. >> hers the thing. i think that from the outside just because it's over the counter doesn't mean it's automatically safe. for fever reducing, anti-inflammatory effects, tchir oice is advil. it'she brand for ibuprofen. it can be associated with stomach issues and also cardiovascular risk. aka heart attack and stroke for people who use it for extended periods of time. i always say this with any nsaid. the shortestd perio time with the lowest dose possible. >> all right. tyleren's >> your baby or child has as
8:28 am
fever or achy, what do you give them? their choice is children's tylenol. children's tylenol is definitely a favorite of pediatricians. something i like about tylenol is kids under age 6 months can use it. it's also available as a suppository. but using too much or extended periods of time never a good idea. can cause liver issues if used in excess. >> so many cold products out the market how did they settle on dayquil? >> it h three main ingredients. acetamihe acetaminophen. if you're taking other containing things, you don't want to exceed too much. it also contains a cought suppressans well as a nasal decongestant. so it relieves a lot of those daytime cold and flu symptomske lieadache and achiness and sore throat without making you
8:29 am
drowsy. >> this of course is the time of year where we're slhering on sunscreen. >> yes.d an neutrogena is their choice. dermatologists le ittoo. you always want broad spectrum. you want to make sure you're reapplying it every two hours. more frequently if you're swimming or sweating. if you don't do a good job of applying your sunscre and do get a burn, this is their favorite to relieve of the sunburn.of a this contains liadacane. if you stick it in the refrigerator, it's rea rely, re soothing to an. sunbur >> so i get a bug bite. this is what i should be using? >> i didn't know this existed. so afterbite, the active ingredient here is baking soda. and it also contains a little bit of ammonia. the great thing about it is it
8:30 am
comes in ts pin ll. you can keep it in your bag. if you get a bit andou've got itching, just apply it straight to the skin. >> safe for kids >> s. you can use it for children as well. >> this is actually what i use for my allergies. zyrtec. >> the adults,he choice over the counter is zyrtec. for children the choice in claritin. why the difference? here claritin is considered completely non-sedating. zyrtec is mildly sedating. so keep that in mind. i find and i think allergists will tell you, what works for you. for children claritin and adults zyrtec. >> band-aids. >> finally, you have boo boo. band-aid. this is one of the things where it's the brand name. it's the most consistent. we all love baf-aids. and iou do have a cut a/or a wound, neosporin is what you
8:31 am
use. i use it that also contained lidacane. it's like putting the band on sheeltds for everything >> all right. thank you so much. that was wonderful. for the full list, by the way, grab me some of that bug bite stuff. just ahead, the remarkable young here.behind the skim are they've got a new book. travel, packing hacks, networking trips. it's all in the skim. can we skim this ?book good. perfect. first this is "today" on nbc. f nbc. >> i am a skimme r. - yokre heading to moose cree
