    I want to make a small (hence the altoid ref) FAK. Anybody has one? Truth be told I did not search the forums.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the link SOLI. I just wanted to carry a small kit for cuts and burns (I work in a kitchen, so medium to serious cuts/burns), not really a full size Israeli bandage. But I'll check the link. If anyone has any ideas or comments for what works and what doesn't, thanks in advance.

    My Altoids first aid kit has

    a tiny bottle of Purrell
    Band-Aids (various sizes)
    Compact tweezers
    A small tube with some Ibuprofen
    a baggy with some q-tips in it.

    That's all I would really want to carry. I don't carry stuff for serious injuries. Mine is mostly for minor annoyance type injuries. Splinters, stuff in your eye, scrapes, small cuts, etc.

    I live in Mexico city, so I am not familiar with this. What is Purrell?

    It's an alcohol based hand cleaner.

    The tweezers I bought a t CVS came in a little plastic tube. It's was the perfect size for pills of other very small things.
