Not sure if I know what you mean.

I'm thinking for everyday + emergency. To treat stuff that isn't going to stop you climbing, but makes life more bearable. In an emergency, for example, I wouldn't be using panadol, but if you are climbing with someone who has a headache, it can quiet the whining. Same with stingooze on a nasty ant bite, bandaids on a leech bite (ooh, that reminds me, salt...)

I've usually got this stuff with me anyway. If I'm not planning to be out overnight I've got a small single-led torch just in case. And my little pack of baby wipes is pretty handy, both for cleaning the grit from your hands before taking in food, and cleaning the other end after the food has done its job. Lemon fresh is my personal preference, but that's another topic.
