Athletes foot new












“Come on, Phil. When did you last do any exercise?”

Phil’s feet were dripping. The skin was macerated and peeling off. His soles were a mouldy green colour with crimson and white splodges. His trainers, I suppose they were his only pair, were damp and squidgy. I know it’s harsh to say it but Phil stank.

“That looks more like Trench foot than Athlete’s foot, Mr Davies. It would have been amputated in 1915.”

Athlete’s foot.
