Is it safe to wade barefoot in Mediterranean?

If you cut your foot while wadding in the Mediterranean can there be problems with papasites or pathogens? Mamie

    Bonjour Maeberry 50.

    Good question- I don't think you are at any greater risk with a cut foot in the Mediterranean Sea than in any other sea, possibly less.

    Are your anti tetanus jabs in-date?

    If your foot unfortunately gets cut, whilst I'm no doctor, a generous treatment of antiseptic/iodine solution ought to be sufficient but seek qualified medical assistance as required.

    Keep in mind that literally millions of people swim here each year- the European population is far from declining.

    Bonne Route!
