    Ibuprofen, aspirin, neosporen, medical and duct tape, moleskin, anti-diarreal pills (nothing worse than getting the shei-ts in the backcountry), allergy pills, Tylenol PM, band-aids, and gauze. I need to add super glue to the mix.

    That about covers it. I do carry a couple of other thing too. A small set of nail trimmers and a real small folding magnifying glass. Sounds weird I know, but really helps when you have cactus thorns or splinters to dig out.

    I'd recommend adding QuikClot to your medical kit. If you're not familiar with it - its used on open wounds/cuts to help blood coagulate quickly and stop bleeding faster. You can pick up small pouches of it that are lightweight. I've never had need to use it while in the woods, but my medic in the army swore by it.

    Medical suturing kits are not available to the public. They can only be bought by doctors from medical supply houses. They check out the credentials of everybody who tries to buy one to make sure that they are legitimate. Go see a doctor to get sewn up. Do not do what the Charles Bronson character did on "Death Wish". You will only wind up with a bad infection.

    I currently don't carry much of a medical kit-just some gauze, antibacterial cream, and band aids-but I have been thinking about purchasing one of those complete kits from Adventure Medical Kits.
