Sports related blisters form when your foot slides or shifts in your shoe, causing friction while you run or perform other athletic activities. Fluid collects between the irritated layers of skin tissue and swells, forming a bubble.
Blisters develop very quickly and can take several days to heal. It’s always best to care for or treat the blister as soon as possible to prevent the pain from getting worse. If they break open, they can become infected, making the pain even worse and further delaying your recovery.
Blisters can affect anyone whether you are an athlete, sport enthusiast or just on a mission to get fit. Activities like running, hiking, golfing, skiing, playing soccer or tennis, climbing mountains or dancing, can all cause blisters to strike on any part of the feet. From the top of the toes (and in between them) to the back of the heel, blisters can stop you in your tracks and nobody needs that. This situation can be avoided.
