Runners use Moleskin Plus padding by Dr. Scholl’s to help ease the pain from hot spots that often occur on the soles of their feet the result of running for long distances. It plays the same role when it comes to protecting your feet during an emergency situation. The CDC reports that diabetics can be at an even greater disadvantage during emergency situations and urges them to pay close attention to their foot care needs.
This Padding is a much needed addition to any kit for numerous reasons. It promises to help you avoid shoe friction, as well as, provide relief from corns and calluses. The self-stick adhesive keeps the padding in place which can be very important should the emergency situation require you to walk through water, mud, or snow. In addition, the padding is durable and designed to last all day, so you don’t have to change out the padding and can focus on the task at hand.
One of the big selling points to the padding is that it is not “one size fits all,” but the padding can be easily cut to fit any size shoe from toddlers to adults. The padding also provides immediate relief from calluses and corns that may develop during the emergency.
