 Symptoms: Unpleasant odour from the feet area, an increase in the diameter of the circle of confidence, a desire to increase the distance between the feet and the nose. Secondary signs are damp socks usually accompanied by damp volleys. Symptoms: Unpleasant odour from the feet area, an increase in the diameter of the circle of confidence, a desire to increase the distance between the feet and the nose.

 Treatment: Treatment is simple and cure rate about 99%. Copious quantities of soap and water, the later preferably hot. In severe cases removal of the volleys and exchange with fresh dressing. The discarded volleys should he incinerated to prevent re-occurence of the malady. Treatment: Treatment is simple and cure rate about 99%.
