WILDERNESS MEDICINE IMPROVISATION TIPS
Foot issues are a very common source of pain and discomfort in the backcountry. Commercial blister dressings are sometimes adequate but for longer trips, rougher terrain, heavier gear and boots you may need more complex dressings. Stretchy thin small pore tape (i.e. Micropore) layered over either moleskin or gel-based blister dressing holds well over time and can be shaped to the foot and reinforced as needed. You will need a role of tape if there are several victims. Scissors are very helpful to trim the dressing.
