How to Treat and Prevent Blisters on Your Feet

Your skin responds to excess friction and pressure by producing a liquid-filled sac called a blister that covers the damaged skin. Blisters on the feet can be especially problematic since they can make it uncomfortable to wear shoes and walk or exercise. One of the main causes of blisters is footwear that doesn’t fit properly causing rubbing and pressure.

Have your feet properly measured and choose shoes that fit properly and provide adequate support. A computerized gait analysis can be performed to see if you have any pronation problems. Custom orthotic inserts may help correct gait abnormalities.
