4. Aspirin (if you have concerns about heart attacks)

Everything else for the most part can just be ignored. A bee sting, annoying as it is, isn't a big deal. Similarly, over the counter painkillers are only going to help with minor pain, which you could ignore. For extremely serious pain, where meds would help you, the meds you have would be useless.
why two comments on blisters but nothing about moleskin? also, instead of popping a blister, why not run a needle with thread through it, cut off needle and let the fluid wick out?

Don't ya just love the masochists that tell you to forget pain meds?
Depends on where the bee stings you.
A minor pain can grow into a migraine, why put up with it?
The stronger pain meds will knock you out, not a good thing while you need to be aware while SHTF.

I really like the contact cases for small amts of creams and such. Great way to store just enough with out bottles that can squish under weight.

While I do like the contact case solution, I think they're too heavy and bulky when you could just fill straws with the same thing for single serving uses, just my opinion.

another solution is to cut a drinking straw down to small pieces, seal both ends with liquid/lotion of need

Not being a wimp about pain has nothing to do with being a masochist.

It means blocking out the pain and not stopping short of your objective.

Bee sting or headache? I'll check you for allergic reaction or dehydration, namely something life threatening.

If you keep slowing me down complaining about simple pain and I don't think it is serious enough I'll leave you behind for the wolves.

I agree with you to the extent that you don't want your minor pain to be one major, but that is individual. like a migraine, one needs to know ones own body, triggers and best treatment. if you regularly get migraines, it's easy to trigger one. if shtf, you'll need your meds for anything that will prevent you from making the best decisions you can
