Hammertoe blisters: hammertoes are bony deformities due to excessive flex ion of the toes due to the overpowering of the flexor tendons over the extensor tendons. It may be genetic, but tight shoes usually is the culprit causing painful blisters. Try to avoid wearing narrow shoes and heels that put too much pressure on the digits. They will return if you don't change your shoe gear.

Protective Mechanism: When there is injury to our skin, inflammation occurs which means the area becomes red, warm, tender and with swelling. Swelling occurs under skin layers and causes them to bulge creating a protective fluid cushion we call a blister. As the area heals, the fluid is resorbed or when no longer needed, the blister opens and the fluid drains. This should take about a week. Simple bandaids are the tx.

Blisters are fluid: Filled and they can be pierced with a sterile instrument after cleaning the skin to allow the fluid to exit. If they reoccur, you likely are wearing shoes that are too tight. The purpose of a hammertoe repair is to straighten the toe so the top is not sticking up too high and causing too much friction resulting in corns or blisters.
