Dental floss, works well for many purposes, sewing, stitches

Tampons, great fire tinder, can be used as a blood clotter.

Maxi pad, again great for bandage uses, can also be used as insoles for shoes if needed for whatever reason

All good. Have a talk with your family doctor and let him know honestly, how much knowledge and/or experience you have in 1st aid/medical procedures.

He can advise what you need, and if you're a bit knowledgeable and mature, he may write you a prescription or two that could make all of the difference in an emergency.

I carry several "items" in my kit that are only avilable with a prescription.
