Listing Details
Before the Vietnam war, skin disease was not seen as a cause of disability among soldiers. In Vietnam, the sheer weight of numbers of cases at last forced recognition of skin diseases in military medicine, as a result prevention, and treatment of fungal infections changed. Attempts to prevent infection by sterilising footwear were found to be useless, but the use of powders containing non irritating fatty acids (such as undecylenic acid) was determined to be an effective method of treatment.
