Your first aid kit

In the process of putting together a little first aid kit and stuck for ideas!Any tips on what you throw in?

So far...First field dressings
Blister pack
TCP

Not a long list admittedly!

Cheers for any help

Zinc oxide stuff, ibuprofen (lots of), Germolene, E45 (if you don't like having a nice scabby crotch from a nice long tab), pins for removing splinters, vaseline, antihistamine tabs, paracetamol, scissors, imodium (or cheap brand of the like), tweezers.

Now i've actually written the post i've found the wiki article on it: CLICKY

these little waterproof plastic boxes are great for a first aid kit in the smaller sizes. They do mess tin sized ones too for your webbing.

And the marshmellows would be good for squeezing into a bullet entry wound

Disposable gloves,
OPA(self sized),
a couple of conforming bandages,
'freeze' gel, (spray or patches)
asprin (for pain) the xxxfen does for swelling.
'lucosade' type tablets
a crepe bandage, as the FFD won't fit over the broader chested types
ACS, depending on whats happening.

all this and the above in Pouch Medical Trauma

which should be on personal issue.

There 1000!

Put one of those little thingies that you can use to pull of ticks with. If you use normal pincets the head of the tick will usually stay in and cause an infection.

Another handy little plastic thingy is one of those plugs you can pull of contact lenses with. :crying:

Also the antihistamine mentioned above is a good idea. Exhaustion on exercises can cause allergic reactions that people normally wouldn't have.

Also do not forget to put latex gloves in (If you don't have those in your normal webbing yet).
