    Im following the advice for a first aid kit on this (excellent) site.
    Ive searched the forums but haven't found any informations on where to buy the gear if you are already in the area - (my first set down in Kuala Lumpur, 2nd is Bangkok, im writing this in the plane now).

    Im trying to find:
    Adheasive bandage (bigger and stickier than a band aid)
    rap-able bandage
    antiseptic cream/gel (for cleaning small cuts)
    hand sanitizer
    tweezers
    needle
    thread or fishing line

    also, does anyone know if its possible to buy antibiotics over the counter without a prescription?

    and what do people use tiger balm for? i keep hearing about it, but i dont know what its for?
