Have to agree with toilet paper & wet-wipes. I'm not as tough & invulnerable as I used to be. (Or at least used to think I was...)

The light-blue medicated chapstick is also good for putting on small cuts, scrapes, etc to help prevent infections.

My normal treatment for a minor cut when out & about is simply let bleed a little, clean as best possible, chapstick & then krazy glue. Works pretty well when you're out away from things.
