Blisters form when there is continuous friction on the skin. One of the most common places for blisters to form is on the feet. If you've recently purchased a new pair of shoes that you haven't broken in, blisters can develop in areas where the shoe rubs and presses against your foot. If you're an athlete or a runner, you've probably experienced a blister or two after wearing a new pair of athletic shoes.
What to Do for Blisters?
What can you do for relief? To protect blistered areas and reduce friction, we have easy-to-use paddings made of material like moleskin and soft gel cushioning. These paddings, strips, and cushions are suitable for covering blisters as well as other foot problems like corns and calluses. Gel cushioning pads are specially designed to shield a blister against friction while keeping germs that cause infection out. The soft gel makes every step more comfortable.
While paddings, strips, and gel wraps are suitable for most shoes, what if you're wearing sandals or open-toed shoes? You're still covered. We carry easy-to-apply products with lubricants that form a physical barrier over the blister to help protect it from friction and irritation. They’re discreet even when you’re wearing strappy sandals. There are also lubricants that help reduce friction. These foot care products are lightweight and don’t leave a greasy residue.
Blister Protection for the Whole Family
Blister relief products protect your skin against friction and irritation but it's important to see your doctor if a blister fails to heal or if you see signs of infection - redness, swelling, heat, or thick drainage. Also, contact your doctor if you have diabetes or reduced circulation to your legs and a blister develops.
