Wash your hands.
Change your socks.
Drink a canteen of water. Or 3.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Or maybe a gram is worth a kilogram? Anyway...

Slow down. Pay attention. If you don't get cut, you can't get an infection (well, not that kind anyway). Don't let things chafe or abraid.

Wash your clothes. Remove the buildup of oils and any critters. Also, this will restore loft and improve insulation.

If you are wet: dry out. You don't need to be a tough guy who pushes through blisters, skin abrasion, hypothermia, hyperthermia, skin rashes, infections, etc. You won't likely have an entire military or medical facility there to look after you and take care of you. So slow down, be alert, pay attention to what is around you, and don't take unnecessary risks.

If you have to be wet, dress for it and know how to deal with it.

What I am saying is: attitude and hygiene are super important. Simple things like staying hydrated and staying dry are huge. Somewhere I read that "native" peoples never move at "100%" speed in life. They only ever move at about "60%" speed. Or less. In my experience, this allows one to better listen to and take care of one's body, and avoid/prevent problems.

Also, don't ever take unnecessary risks. Don't roll the dice unless you have to. If you are not rolling the dice, "your number" won't come up.

I stopped at #3.
Eating activated charcoal will bind ingested chemicals and poisons. No, it can kill you. Use of AC has been depreciated for over a decade in the popular press. Longer than that in the professional medical community.

"Home remedies" have just as good a (or greater) chance of causing more injury/pain as not.

Get professional medical training, take refresher training.
Don't play medic, don't let others play medic with you.

Oh, and don't get your 'training' from oddball sites in the interwbz....

Yeah, a permanent stench of putresense along with necrotic bacterial infestations in the nether regions, and you know there will be attempted 'freak on', How come I haven't seen it in the movies yet?

Sweet mother of pearl......... There are a few true and good points in that list but a lot of them will cause much more harm than good and are based on rumor or "old wives tales" rather than Medical knowledge and fact.

Brush your teeth even if you don't have toothpaste.

Learned that from reading "The Postman".

Yeah don't stick yogurt in your vagina. It will most likely just make the infection worse. Also they don't exactly tell you how you are supposed to get it back out.

Quoted for truth. I am sorry, but some of those I bet would just flat out fucking kill the patient......and some are just fucking stupid.
Also, I can't trust anything that spells FETAL "foetal"

That's just the British English variant spelling (since it's a British website, not too surprising), like color/colour, or hemoglobin/heamoglobin. Stick with judging it for the content, most of which has some grain of truth to it, but is oversimplified so far that it's not helpful and possibly dangerous. I admire the idea - a list simple things that could improve health - but there are a lot of additional details or caveats.
