Blister Prevention

It's time to break out the sandals! Unfortunately, that can mean blisters! The friction of shoes can cause blisters especially shoes that are new or haven't been worn for awhile. There are a few steps you can take to help prevent blisters.

1. Wear well fitting socks with your sneakers.

2. Wear well fitting shoes to prevent your feet from sliding in the shoes. 

3. Apply moleskin to areas of your foot that a shoe is rubbing.

4. Apply an anti friction stick. Dr. Scholl's Blister Defense Anti Friction Stick and Footglide Foot Formula are two examples of anti friction sticks. They put an invisible protective film on the skin to help prevent shoe friction.

5. Make sure shoe inserts are not too thick. Thick inserts may crowd feet in shoe creating shoe rubbing.
