MEMORANDA OF AN M.O. Scratch Men [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 15 January 1942
MEMORANDA OF AN M.O. Scratch Men The lad who is always scratching like a mangy horse has. probably acquired Tinea or Prickly Heat. Tinea, . or Surfer's Itch, is strangely enough a bath room disease, but one ..must. bathe. After the bath, the feet and between the toes should be dried and powdered, and a little foot powder put in the toes of the socks. Easy to get, hard to get rid of, is Tinea. Shower floors must be scoured and disinfected regularly." Some boys used to wash their clothes under the show ers, they all .got Tinea in the crutch. It does not pay. The clothes should be boiled to kill Tinea. The Medico cannot keep in touch witli the feet of every soldier 'in a unit. The junior officers should inspect their men in the nude at least once a week, and send suspects to the M.O. Prickly Heat does not come on suntanned skin, and grAdual suntanning, taking care against sunstroke and burn, will solve many skin problems. You will hear about "Break bone Fever" next Thursday.
