Marcus RossWhen hikers on the Appalachian Trail found themselves with injuries like ankle sprains and broken legs, they often turned to a passing nurse named Marcus Ross for help. Ross was on a mission to walk the entire length of the trail, and though he did the best he could to help others he actually ended up getting painful blisters himself.

Luckily he was able to take a pit-stop at a nearby podiatrist’s office, who taught him a lot about his feet. “I actually had a lot of problems with blisters and it turns out it was the anatomy of my feet and the way my foot turns when I go to step down,” Ross said.

Blisters on the feet can be painful and can sometimes prevent people from walking. For assistance with blisters and other skin conditions, call a podiatrist like Dr. Henry Slomowitz of Paramus and Paterson. Dr. Slomowitz will look carefully at your blisters and give you a professional recommendation about how to treat them.

Blisters on the Feet

When tight or ill-fitting footwear is worn, many times a foot blister may develop. Blisters can even develop by constant rubbing from the shoe, often times leading to pain.

What is a Foot Blister?

A foot blister is a small pocket that is filled with fluid, forming on the upper most layer of the skin. Blisters are filled with clear fluid, and may lead to drainage of blood or pus if the area has become infected.

How do they Form?

Blisters of the feet are almost always the result of shoe rubbing and constant friction of the skin and material. Long periods of walking in shoes, sandals, or boots which don’t fit properly can result in a blister. Those who often have moisture or humidity in the feet are prone to blister formation easily.

Prevention & Treatment

Proper care is vital to alleviate pain and prevent infection to the affected area of the foot. The best treatment is to leave them alone. New skin will develop under the blister and during the healing stages, your blister will pop.

Description: Thandie NewtonLots of stars leave events with pain causing heels in hand, but that’s not the case with actress Thandie Newton, according to “Style News Now, People.” “The thing about blisters is that, if you get a blister it’s good. The skin in that area is going to toughen up, so it actually means your feet have been wounded and healed to wear those specific shoes,” said Newton at the Cinema for Peace Foundation gala in Beverly Hills. According to Newton a callus form on the area where the shoes rub and that so happens to be the case with her, breaking into new kicks. “I always welcome the blister – it’s like the labor for birth.”
