Blistery Foot Woes

Blisters on the feet are often caused by friction from wearing ill-fitting shoes or engaging in prolonged physical activity. Corns can also result from burns, allergic reactions, or fungal infections. These fluid-filled pockets form as a protective response to pressure or irritation on the skin. While blisters are usually harmless, they can become painful if they rupture or get infected. Preventing blisters involves wearing properly fitting shoes, using moisture-wicking socks, and avoiding repetitive friction on the skin. Applying cushioning pads or bandages to high-friction areas can also help reduce the risk of blister formation. Podiatrists can provide treatment to relieve pain, prevent infection, and address underlying factors that contribute to blister formation, ensuring optimal foot health and comfort. If you have a foot blister that persists or has become painful or infected, it is suggested that you seek professional care from a podiatrist.

Blisters may appear as a single bubble or in a cluster. They can cause a lot of pain and may be filled with pus, blood, or watery serum. If your feet are hurting, contact Edward Fryman, DPM, FACFAOM of Seaford Foot Care Center. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Foot Blisters

Foot blisters are often the result of friction. This happens due to the constant rubbing from shoes, which can lead to pain.

What Are Foot Blisters?

A foot blister is a small fluid-filled pocket that forms on the upper-most layer of the skin. Blisters are filled with clear fluid and can lead to blood drainage or pus if the area becomes infected.


(Blister symptoms may vary depending on what is causing them)

  • Bubble of skin filled with fluid
  • Redness
  • Moderate to severe pain
  • Itching

Prevention & Treatment

In order to prevent blisters, you should be sure to wear comfortable shoes with socks that cushion your feet and absorb sweat. Breaking a blister open may increase your chances of developing an infection. However, if your blister breaks, you should wash the area with soap and water immediately and then apply a bandage to the affected area. If your blisters cause severe pain it is important that you call your podiatrist right away.
