What causes blisters?
Blisters start with an intense and continuous friction of the
skin on your foot against a shoe, especially if it is new or stiff.
A pocket forms between the skin and the underlying tissue and quickly fills up with fluid, creating a blister. It’s a natural
protection your body creates – a wet cushion that protects the wounded area and helps healing.
How to prevent blisters
Lots of things can cause blisters like sporting activities such as running,
or wearing a pair of new shoes. Blisters frequently occur on the heel, sole or
toes and for each of these areas you can choose suitable protective gel
patches – giving relief from pain or the pressure of footwear, and creating the
optimum conditions for healing.
