In everyday life or when facing a survival situation or SHTF moment, having an adequate first aid kit is extremely important to your well-being.
In a survival situation, cuts, scrapes and abrasions are almost “part of the territory” and being able to treat them so they do not become infected is paramount.
An infection can lead to many complications, including getting it in your bloodstream if the wound is serious enough and that can lead to fever, disorientation and even death.
