As Texans gather across the state to celebrate the Fourth of July, many in Houston will enjoy Southwest Airline’s Freedom Over Texas event at Eleanor Tinsley Park. In honor of the freedom we enjoy in the United States, a firework extravaganza will serve as the finale.

During this time of year, we often think about the men and women who have served in our armed forces. Service during times of war has many perils, and the feet are commonly affected. Trench Foot is one foot condition related to war. Common during World War I, it developed as a result of soldiers hunkering down in ditches during battle. This type of warfare meant long periods of exposure to damp, cold conditions. The feet were often wet and housed in equally wet socks and boots.

As trench foot developed, soldiers would experience tingly, itchy feet, redness, and possible loss of feeling. Similar to frost bite treatment, warming was an important part of saving the feet. This was done after they were cleansed and dried. The skin would often breakdown in the process and infections from fungus and bacteria would develop. As trench conditions and war tactics changed, this foot disorder became less common. However, it has been a part of every war with varying names attached to it—jungle foot, paddy foot, and immersion foot.

During war and peace, the health of the feet is extremely important. As you celebrate freedom, remember that you’re not a prisoner to foot pain. Dr. Marco Vargas and his expert staff are here to help. Call for an appointment today at one of our three convenient locations: Missouri City, Houston, and Sugar Land, TX.
