For Swollen Feet
Policemen, mail carriers, and others whose occupation keeps them on
their feet a great deal, often are troubled with chafed, sore and
blistered feet, especially in extremely hot weather, no matter how
comfortably their shoes may lit. A powder is used in the German army for
sifting into the shoes and stockings of the foot soldiers, called
Fusstreupulver, and consists of 3 parts salicylic acid, 10 parts
starch and 87 parts pulverized soapstone.
