Bye-Bye Blisters: Love Your Shoes
and Wear Them, Too

 

 

 

 

All of us want to wear the best shoes every time we go
out, but then in return sometime we are not comfortable. Blisters are one of
the problems that we are experiencing. To relief the pain we need to put
band-aids temporary. Burlington SofiGel will solve this kind of problem.


 

 

PREVENT BLISTERS BEFORE THEY HAPPEN:

 

 

 

1. Tailor the shoe to your foot. Most of us wait until we get a blister to do something
about it. Cleary recommends padding a new shoe before wearing them
outside. "When you first buy the heels, bring them home, put them on,
and walk around your house in them for at least an hour. Any points that
feel little bit uncomfortable, are going to be massive pain points
later."Pad the inside of your shoes where you felt the most irritation. "If
you do this, you will never get a blister," Cleary swears


2. Pad the heel. Shoe manufacturers put a stiffening agent in the heel to retain the shape of the shoe and so it stays on your foot. Consequently, our heels are the first to suffer. "The number one thing to do is pad the heel before you wear them outside," Cleary adds.

TREATING A BLISTER:

Blisters form because it's the body's natural way of defending itself against friction and pressure, but if the blister is sticking out and causing more irritation, Leahy says sometimes it is OK to drain it — but you have to be very careful. If you have any health issues such as poor circulation or diabetes, she recommends seeing a podiatrist.

To drain a blister:

  1. Sterilize a needle and the surface of the blister with rubbing alcohol.
  2. Introduce the needle into the side of the blister, parallel to the skin, so you don't run the risk of piercing the flesh at the base of the blister.
  3. Gently dab the blister with sterile gauze to facilitate the drainage. (It's best not to remove the roof of the blister because it acts as a protective barrier to protect the underlying skin.)
  4. Apply anti-bacterial ointment and a band-aid until it's healed or dried out.
