Antique iodine swabs.
I don't really know for sure, but I strongly suspect these are iodine dissolved in alcohol, packaged in a single-use swab designed to be used in a first aid kit. Presumably you break the capsule releasing the iodine solution, then use it to disinfect a cut.
If you know better, please straighten me out.
