Mole skin and mole foam are great and in common use. Getting a blister on your feet can become a serious problem if left untreated. I keep some in my
med kit as a standard item.
If you have the fuel, and the time, the boiling water is a great way to make it safe. A good filter, such as the Katadyn, will do the job quicker
Before you wrap that cut, clean it and add some Neosporin, or similar salve to prevent infection. Wrapping an unclean cut just makes a cozy place for
infection to set in.
I am not certain that most of the folks on ATS would be able to identify a Chinchona tree, found only in South America, but having a good
understanding of herbal remedies is a good idea.
