Remedies for Blisters:

Blisters


Blisters are fluid-filled pouches on the top of the skin. They form when the skin rubs against another surface, usually the inside of the shoes, causing friction. A tear occurs within the five upper layers of the epidermis, creating a space between the layers. Intofeet in pain which a clear fluid flows in, filling up the space and pushing feet in pain out the surface causing a blister.

Treatment:  to prevent blisters wear comfortable shoes that fit you well. Make sure the shoes are not too tight or too loose.

When trying on shoes, bring along the same socks, insole and orthotics that you normally wear.
Since feet tend to swell during the day shop for shoes in the afternoon or evening.
Walk around the store with the shoes to identify any areas of discomfort before buying them.
If the blister is infected seek medical attention. Signs of infections include pus draining from the blister, warm and very red skin around the area and red streaks leading away from the blister.
If the blister is intact and small just cover the blister with a small adhesive bandage and leave it alone.

If the blister is larger but intact it should be drained without removing the roof.
Step 1. Clean the blister with rubbing alcohol or antibiotic soap.
Step 2. Sterilize a straight pin over a flame until it glows red.
Step 3. Allow the pin to cool before puncturing a small hole at the edge of the blister.
Step 4. Drain the fluid with gentle pressure and then apply an antibiotic ointment.
Step 5. Cover the blister with a bandage and change the dressing daily or move frequently if it becomes wet.
Step 6. Additional padding is necessary during physical activities.

Prevention: minimize the friction placed on your feet. Before any physical activities apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly or coco butter to the feet before you put on your socks.

Keep your feet dry with foot powder.

Wear your new shoes for 1 to 2 hours on the first day and gradually increase the amount of time you wear them.

Wear the proper shoes for the proper sport.

Use cloth tape over areas prone to blistering before any physical activities.
