Running Footwear for Avoiding Blisters

With Valentine’s Day upon us, thoughts of love and happiness are in the air. One of the things runners love most of all is avoiding blisters. Marathon season is creeping closer, and with the extensive training comes all kinds of discomfort. Here is how to keep blisters from popping up on your feet.

These little fluid filled bubbles are caused by friction between skin and something else (socks, shoes, etc.). One of the most important factors in keeping friction at bay is wearing properly fitting shoes. If shoes are too loose or too tight, blisters could make an appearance. Some people also double up on their socks as a protective measure. There are different creams that keep feet moist, or different socks that stay dry. Try different things and see what works best for you.

If you do fall victim to this painful condition, there are ways to ease the hurt. You can soak your feet in warm water and Epsom salts, and eventually the blister will open up on its own. Try not to puncture it yourself, because that is a good way to invite bacteria into your body. You can put a donut bandage around it to help with pressure or some gauze to catch the drainage.

The best place to go to treat any foot condition is your podiatrist. Call Dr. Marco Vargas and Dr. Joyce Lee at 888-784-5335 to schedule an appointment or book one online. At Foot and Ankle Associates in Houston and Sugar Land, TX we believe in the importance of foot health and will do our best to get you back to full strength.
