Foot blisters generally develop as a result of poorly fitting shoes or socks, both of which create excessive friction and perspiration.
Wear shoes and socks that fit well. Shoes that fit properly should not pinch or cramp your foot at any point, yet should be snug enough that your foot doesn’t slide forward when you walk or come to an abrupt halt.
Be sensitive to the width of your shoes (not just the length), and if you err, err on the side of a fit that’s too loose as opposed to one that’s too tight.
Another good tip is to run your hand carefully along the interior of any shoe you wish to purchase: Heavily stitched seams, elastic bands, and rough spots have the potential to rub your feet the wrong way . . . and raise painful blisters!
Finally, it never hurts to apply moisturizer to your feet before slipping on your socks. You’ll reduce friction that way, plus add needed moisture to one of the driest areas of your skin’s surface.
At-Home Treatment For Blisters
Soak the affected foot in tepid water (or a mixture of soap and water), then pat dry. Next, apply antibiotic ointment to the blister and bandage the wound until it heals completely.
