Water-Associated Illness

Usually, forests are supposed to be wet and damp places. These wet places could prove to be dangerous. If your feet remain wet for a prolonged period, you would get immersion foot or trench foot. Your feet would get infected provided your feet are constantly dipped in water. Your feet would be infected provided your feet are forever waterlogged. If you do not see a doctor at once, you would develop gangrene and you may have to get your feet amputated. Carry a pair of protective long boots to safeguard your feet from all sorts of dangers.
