How to use First Aid Kit in Project Zomboid

There are many little things you need to do to survive in Project Zomboid. There are many skills to level, and gear to find; there are tons to build as well. Players can learn to build bases with carpentry, or to make complex electronics. But as you play all over the world of Knox County, you will get into some dangerous situations. But much like real life, not everything is all sunshine and rainbows. Sometimes you get wounded. And with the various healing items you have for options, you need to find them first.

Unlike what other games have conditioned you to think, this game handles things a bit differently. The healing items in this game are not used directly, as they rely on having to combine things together to treat various wounds. The ability to heal things like deep wounds and other terrible injuries depends on using various disinfectants and tools to keep wounds clean. You need to be able to stitch and bandage up wounds as well.
