Solution for a Sticky Summer Situation

Article

Tar on the feet and legs can be an unwelcome consequence of summer trips to the beach.

 

Tar on the feet and legs can be an unwelcome consequence of summer trips to the beach. Getting it off can be difficult, painful, and harmful to the underlying tissue. Tell patients they can make removal easier by gently rubbing a small amount of mayonnaise on the affected area. They can then use a clean cloth to remove the tar, which should come off without difficulty. If the tar has burned the skin, advise them to use appropriate first aid for burns.
