You can keep following:

1. Salt
2. Metylene Blue
3. Antibiotic like as Tetracycline, Paraxin etc.
4. Metrogyl
5. Quinine sulphate

Wait the response of others.

Salt is good for most fungal and bacterial infections in their early stages. Raising the temperature and adding a pinch of salt is useful in treating nipped fins, fin rot etc.
Methylene blue is a disinfectant.
Metrogyl and Praziquintal are good medications for internal parasitic related ailments.

Anti ICH of Rid all contains Piperazine and Methylene blue.

I think Common salt and Epsom salt can cure most the diseases. However a medical kit including the medicine list as mentioned by Rajivjee is must for all keepers.
