Military Foot Problems

The brave men and women of our armed forces are required to do a lot of difficult training to ensure our freedom. This hard work, however, has a toll on their feet.

Many Soldiers and Marines are seen regularly by their physician for the treatment of ailments such as ingrown toenails, athlete’s foot, blisters, and calluses, to name a few. We know that most times during training there is no time to properly care for your feet. However, finding the time for these important things has been proven to help some.

  • Regularly replace your socks
  • Use a foot powder regularly
  • Try to keep your feet dry as much as possible
  • Replace your shoes as often as possible
  • Trim your nails short and straight across
  • Be sure that your boots fit properly
  • Wear insoles or pads in your boots for more support
