In December I took a look at my Every Day Carry (EDC) items and decided I hand some gaps in my EDC gear. I only carried two or three band aids for first aid purposes. Writing this blog is forcing me to take a closer look at my own preps and helps me fill in any gaps found. This kit will fit in Altoids tin and fits easily in a pocket. I have a larger first aid kit as well that will be the subject of a future post.

Ibuprofen (10) – Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory, pain reliever and fever reducer. Pack then on small Ziploc bags available from the craft section of Wal- Mart
Pseudoephedrine (Sudafed) (8) – Good for colds and allergies.
