Common diseases and illnesses in the trenches were that there were many rats in the trenches, this gave the soldiers diseases.

There was trench foot, which made their feet turn rot and swell up from the moisture. Some people said they could put a bayonet through their foot and they wouldn't feel it

There was also trench fever, which was found to be caused by lice, and in the last year of the war, the "Spanish Flu" hit the world, including the trenches of Europe.

In the War Diary I studied, the most common illnesses were boils and skin problems or ICT the soldiers were vaccinated against typhoid.

Lastly shell shock and blindness or burns from mustard gas.
