Yes: blistering can be a very normal effect of the cryotherapy. acctually it means a more favorable out come. unfortunatly it also means pain with walking. if you have normal circulation feel free to soak. look for signs of infection. redness incresed pain swelling and inform your doctorn immediately

Forget: the epsom salt...just soak in hot (but not burning!!) water and call the Cryotherapist for exact advice ASAP! Hope this helps! Dr Z
