Blisters. One of the worst things that hiking Boy Scouts and Venturers can suffer. By the eighth day of the 2013 National Scout Jamboree, boots are wet, clean socks are scarce, and feet — well, they need some loving care. Dr. Neal Frankel, one of the jamboree’s staff podiatrists (yes, there are podiatrists on staff) has some advice for participants to prevent blisters and help care for injured feet.

“Change socks twice a day; it helps keep your feet dry and prevent blisters,” says Frankel. At the Summit, Scouts and Venturers should wear boots rather than low-cut footwear like tennis shoes. “If you have a blister that has popped, come see us at one of the medical tents,” says Frankel. This is important to prevent infection of the raw skin underneath the blister, he says.
