Blisters can make wearing shoes or participating in regular activities uncomfortable, in addition to putting the body at risk for possible infections. You need to take care of them to relieve the discomfort and protect your feet. Avoid wearing shoes or doing activities that aggravate the sore, and leave the bubble intact if it’s small and the skin hasn’t ruptured. Gently rub antibacterial ointment over the area and bandage it—you may want to use a moleskin pad with a hole cut out cushion the area as well. Change the bandage regularly to keep the sore clean until the blister heals completely.
If your sore spot does not improve, or if you have a compromised immune system from diabetes or any other disease, have the blister examined right away to prevent an infection. Blisters generally heal within a short period of time, but should never be ignored or considered unimportant. Instead, contact Foot & Ankle Associates in Texas for an appointment or more information and take care of your lower limbs. Call our offices at (888) 784-5335 or visit our website contact page.
