I have some burn gel that I only take on trips where I am not hiking or riding due to weight/size. Canoe and car only. I have never had to use it, so it is one of those items that I carry but have no idea if it is worth it. If I make a fire then I always have a bottle of water or access to a river. Has anyone used it? Is it just soothing relief or does it have a genuine medical use that water and bandage won't do? What I am asking is - (to keep weight/size down) is it worth carring or will water/sterile pad/pain pills do the same job? Thanks.
