While summer usually means spending less time in enclosed footwear, it can increase your propensity for foot blisters.
You are less likely to wear socks or stockings with your shoes, and heat and moist skin create ideal conditions for blister formation. If your blistering is chronic or recurring, you should see your podiatrist. Left untreated, chronic blisters can lead to more serious complications including infection and ulcers.
At Foot Health Clinic, we can assess the causes of your blistering and provide the most appropriate treatment, including:
- shoe recommendations and fitting;
- sock recommendations;
- blister pad recommendations;
- topical medications to decrease excessive moisture;
- prescription orthotics to reduce abnormal motion and prevent excessive friction.
