What is it?
Blisters are painful, fluid-filled lesions that are often caused by friction and pressure. They usually have a bubble like appearance, though continued friction can force them to burst.
What can cause it?
- Ill-fitting or new footwear
- Wrinkled socks rubbing across the skin
- Excessive moisture
- Foot deformities
What can I do to alleviate it?
Blisters can often burst on their own increasing the risk of infection. One of our chiropodists at
Clarke Ventresca Foot & Orthotic Centres may remove the surface of the blister and dress it to prevent infection and further irritation. Topical or oral antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent and treat infection.
