Is it just me? I've seen lots of good first aid kit talked about over the years, but I don't seem to remember anyone listing mole skin for foot problems. Works great to prevent blisters, etc. if you're walking a long ways.

Oh yeah definitely Mole skin...But hey...whats the name of that liquid they would inject into a blister to get it taken care of quickly....I only knew it as "Liquid Hell" It honestly made me scream and cry like a 10 year old girl at a Beiber concert....Gawd that was painful....That condensed a week of blister pain into 5-8 seconds of total hell. But then it was all better...Or at least the normal pain of a blister was unnoticeable after that...

I've had this moleskin stuff in my first aid kits for years and years....and years. I've never had occasion to use it, though. But I'll keep it in there. ;)

That would be benzoin tincture its an antiseptic adhesive agent much like a thin version of New Skin by the way I LOVE NEW SKIN best bang for your buck 1oz of fluid gets you almost 144 square inches of coverage although unlike moleskin its fairly useless before you get the serous filled blister or blood filled your choice but I always used petroleum jelly to ease a developing blister

I keep three packages of moleskin in my get home bag and I always carry one or two more in my suitcase when I travel for business. I love the stuff.

Yah, me too. But I feel bad for all the little moles that give their lives for us.
