Treating and Preventing Blisters

Treating and Preventing Blisters

An otherwise enjoyable physical activity can often become a painful and debilitating experience when blisters develop on your feet. The coexistence of heat, moisture, and rubbing that occurs during running, hiking, and just plain walking can cause these fluid-filled sacs to form, often resulting in pain, redness, and possibility of infection.

Here are some tips to help treat and prevent blisters:
