Blisters

Blisters are painful, fluid-filled lesions produced by friction and pressure.


They can be caused by the following:

  • Ill fitting shoes
  • Wrinkled socks within footwear
  • Excessive moisture
  • Foot deformities

Prevent blisters from forming by keeping feet dry, always wearing socks as a cushion, and wearing properly fitting shoes.

If you do have a blister do not pop it but cover with a plaster or gel type dressing. If the blister is open, apply antiseptic ointment before covering with a plaster or gel type dressing.
