Uganda – also here there is Podo ...

At Podo e.V.. some doctors are engaged. Marlene Thielecke wrote her doctoral thesis on Tungiasis, this is an 'infection' with sand fleas. As with Podo, the feet are affected. Similar is also a part of the treatment – foot hygiene. Marlene has been supervising a Tungiasis project in north-eastern Uganda for several years. And that's when people with thick feet stood out. That's why Christel was invited, take a look at your feet on site. The photos already indicated this, that it could be Podo and the suspicion has been confirmed. They are estimated 4% of adult women affected. Treatment with soap, Salt, Oil and socks can also be converted there. Only the appropriate footwear has yet to be found.
