Popping a blister may seem like a simple solution but doing so means the skin will be more susceptible to germs. It’ll also likely be more painful as further friction is inevitable, and could lead to scarring. In fact, bursting a blister will actually slow down the healing process. Left alone a blister will naturally heal on its own within three to seven days.
As blisters are sore and can affect day-to-day activities, one of the best and easiest ways of helping a friction blister and alleviating pain is by using a blister cushion.
The cushions will also help prevent further rubbing and remove excess moisture, enabling the blister to heal faster. Compeed blister cushions –provide instant pain relief – and come in a range of sizes that will allow you to go about daily activities, including sports, without worrying about damaging the blister even more. They provide an optimal healing environment with added cushioning, when compared to regular bandages.
