Once a blister forms, you should treat it quickly to minimize the pain and prevent infection. If a blister is not properly treated, you can expose yourself to a risk of infection or slow down the healing process.
After gently cleaning the area, apply a specialist bandage to cushion the blister from harmful pressure and friction, and to protect the blister from bacteria and dirt. Try to avoid wearing anything that irritates the area. It is best not to burst a blister but if it does open up, clean it gently with mild soapy water, if possible soak it in a salt water foot bath for 10 minutes and then cover with a fresh specialist blister bandage. Blisters can ruin a day, but with COMPEED® Advanced Blister Care cushions on hand, you can save the day and keep on walking.
