What causes blisters?
How to treat blisters
- Wear shoes that fit properly. Ill-fitting shoes can cause rubbing and friction. Talk to your podiatrist about how to purchase healthy fitting shoes.
- Keep feet as dry as possible. Wearing wet shoes, boots and socks will increase your chance of developing blisters, as wet socks can drag against your skin and lead to blisters of the feet.
- Wear moisture-wicking socks such as sports-socks (socks that draw sweat away from your feet) or change socks twice daily if you have sweaty feet, as wet socks cause friction and rubbing.
- If you become aware of a localised ‘hot’ area on your foot, stop your sport and tape the area immediately.
