Anyone who has children knows some kids scream louder after being hurt, especially when they see the blood! I know I have a couple who are that way. So I now use a red cloth when they get cut so they can't see the blood.
Keep all your first aid stuff in a small fruit basket with a handle. Put your peroxide, bandages and gauze pads, etc. Then it will be easy to carry with you on picnics or to the park. You can also carry your sun-tan lotion in it. Don't forget aspirin for bee stings.
If you have a small cut that won't stop bleeding, like a cut received while shaving, use tobacco instead of toilet paper. It congeals and stops the bleeding. One side effect is a tobacco hit, but it really works.
Do you know you can get first aid tips through the internet? I swallowed something and then consulted the net and found out that the item was small enough so the doctors couldn't do anything but wait until it passed through me, so it saved me a trip to the emergency room (where they would have told me the same thing for lots of money).
