Blisters are painful, fluid-filled lesions that are caused by friction and pressure probably caused from ill-fitting shoes, stiff shoes, excessive moisture, foot deformities or other.
Blisters can form very quickly so if you feel like you’re getting one, stop walking or running and examine your feet immediately and check your foot. If the blister has not yet formed, add some material, padding or a breathable plaster to the area. If a blister has formed, don’t pop it, simply cut a hole in a piece foam or felt to form a doughnut over the blister. Tape the foam or felt in place or cover with a soft gel-type dressing.
An open blister can be treated with mild soap and water and covered with an antiseptic ointment along with a protective soft gel dressing to prevent infection and to speed up the healing process.
Blisters normally clear up between three and seven days but if it’s still there after this time and showing no signs of getting better, it is time to see a podiatrist.
