Blisters a byproduct of firefighters’ trekA trio of firefighters from White Bear Lake decided to do a 150-mile trek across the state of Minnesota in order to raise money for a new ATV with forest fire fighting capabilities. But they realized they may have bitten off more than they could chew when their feet became extremely painful.

“We really underestimated how long it would take us,” said Ron Hawkins, one of the firefighters. “We started hurting the first 12 miles. We thought, ‘how will we finish this?’ But we trudged on.” The three men brought several pairs of shoes with them, but still suffered from joint pain and blisters on their feet. They finished the walk in four days, and were fortunately able to raise all of the money that they needed.

Blisters can be painful. If you are suffering from a blister on your foot, receiving treatment from a podiatrist such as Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care help you manage your blister as well as provide treatment.

Foot Blisters

Foot blisters develop as a result of constantly wearing tight or ill-fitting footwear. This happens due to the constant rubbing from the shoe, which can often 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.

How do Blisters Form?

Blisters on the feet are often the result of constant friction of skin and material, usually by shoe rubbing. Walking in sandals, boots, or shoes that don’t fit properly for long periods of time can result in a blister. Having consistent foot moisture and humidity can easily lead to blister formation.

Prevention & Treatment

It is important to properly care for the affected area in order to prevent infection and ease the pain. Do not lance the blister and use a band-aid to provide pain relief. Also, be sure to keep your feet dry and wear proper fitting shoes. If you see blood or pus in a blister seek a doctor.
