The absolutely wonderful thing about Greece’s state-subsidized health care system is that just about any cream you could possibly need while traveling—from anti-histamine cream for easing the itch to yeast infection cream for, well, easing the itch—is available at every pharmacy throughout the country, and very likely at a much lower cost than whatever you’re accustomed to paying at home.
Don’t believe us? Check out this pharmacy mini-index. Anti-histamine creams cost €2.80. Yeast infection creams are remarkably inexpensive, at €3.30.
So if you’re headed to Greece, don’t load yourself down with heavy creams and medications that you might not need while you’re traveling. And rest assured that if you do need them, you’ll be able to find them—and for far less than you’ll pay for them at home.
