Care for your feet

Care for Your Feet

>  Your feet have been mercilessly pounding over the gravels, sand, rocks, streams etc. for several hours. They need rest and recuperation for tomorrow trek.

>   Remove your socks and keep them outside in the sun.

>    Take off your socks and wash them.

>   Wash feet as often as possible. Dry them rub vigorously between toes.

>    If feet look tender, wash them first with soap &water. Dry them & apply powder.

 

BLISTERS

>    Blisters on the treks are inevitable. You cannot avoid them but you can surely know how to deal with them.

>   First clean them with soap and water.

>    Puncture the blister with sterilized pin or needle.

>   Do not remove the skin

>    Apply adhesive plaster, band-aid.

>     Remember to keep your feet as clean as your face.

 

BEFORE YOU MARCH

>    Check your shoes first. They should be comfortable (and never new)

>   They should be loose enough to accommodate 2 pairs of socks and to absorb the friction, which cause blisters. Talcum powder is useful to avoid friction and to cope with sweat.

>    Keep your shoes dry and clean.

>   If your shoes are wet, never dry them over fire. Stuff it with papers. Change your wet socks immediately.

>    Make it a point to change socks every alternative day at least, as a dirty sock not only smell foul but also causes blisters.

>     Lastly, have you tied your shoes properly?
