Keep clean: Blisters can hurt and take a few days/weeks to heal. Is it very red or do you have a photo: want to be sure it is not getting infected. Keep dry and clean and open to air as much as possible. OTC polysporin can help. Consult with us or see MD if getting worse

Don't all blisters you get from rubbing your foot against a shoe contain puss?

Don't all blisters you get from rubbing your foot against a shoe contain puss?

Not at all: Blisters from friction will fill with a serrous fluid. Pus can form if they become infected. Smaller blisters should be left intact so as to not allow them to become infected. If they do tear open apply antibiotic ointment and a sterile bandage. If they do not resolve in a week or so be sure to see your doctor. If you do see pus, they are already infected, and you should see a doc much sooner.

I wore some new shoes the other day and got a giant blister on my foot. Should I pop it?

I wore some new shoes the other day and got a giant blister on my foot. Should I pop it?

Just be careful...: If it were me, i'd pop it... At the edge of the blister and drain it completely of fluid. Just make sure to keep the area very clean so an infection does not set in. I would use triple antibiotic cream and a band-aid cover until it stopped draining.

Why do I get blisters on my right foot only? It can't be my shoe because they are the same.

Blisters: Are caused by friction and just like no two feet are the same, no two soes are the same so the shoe can very well be the cause.

Let it heal on own: A blister functions like a biologic dressing, keeping out bacteria and dirt. Allow it to resolve on its own if possible. If it pops, keep the area clean and dressed with antibiotic ointment and a sterile bandage you change daily.

Can having hsv-1 cause blisters on feet? One foot? Or are the blisters caused by my shoes?

Can having hsv-1 cause blisters on feet? One foot? Or are the blisters caused by my shoes?

Not herpes: Although it is possible to get herpes lesions on other parts of the body (called herpes gladiatorum), it is rare and is v. unlikely in your case. Most probably you're body is reacting to the ill-fitting shoes. I would definitely stop wearing the shoes entirely and try to minimize any activity that makes the feet hurt. You need to rest and recover first. Keep off the feet and protect the blisters.

Right foot, 3rd toe has been having a blister like bump for months, now 4th toe has samething and hurts with closed in shoes on.?

Hammertoes: Is this in the tops of the toes? You may be developing corns from the tops of the toes rubbing inside the shoes. This is common if you have hammertoes. Try a a size larger shoes or shoes with a deeper toe box. If this doesn't help see a podiatrist.

Popped blister on foot from shoes. Has turned hard and yellowish. Is itchy. Right foot and arm tingling and bit numb. Is this related? Infected?

Blistering: Area turned hard, yellowish, & itchy after popped blister on foot: answer: could be cellulitis.Normally would want to drain blister instead of popping it. As a precaution, take an oral antibiotic such as Keflex or ampicillin. Right foot & arm tingling & bit numb: the arm tingling seems unrelated.

How to treat blisters on ankles from bug bites?

Anti-itch med: If the blisters itch you can use an over the counter cortisone cream or Diphenhydramine on them per directions on tube. If they look slightly red and infected, apply some over the counter antibiotic if not allergic to it. If severely infected, see a doctor (either pcp or podiatrist). Try to not scratch at the bites. You can keep a bandage over them to deter scratching.

Will a blister on my ankle scar?

Will a blister on my ankle scar?

Possible scar: If the most superficial layer of skin is involved in the blistering the chances of scaring are low, but the deeper the involvement in the skin the higher the chances of scaring. If the pressure or shearing forces creating the blister are repetitive in the same area, then callus will form thickening the skin and changing its normal appearance.

Is it worse to roll your ankle with or without shoes on during fitness class?

Is it worse to roll your ankle with or without shoes on during fitness class?

Both: While an appropriately selected shoe is important to prevent injury, the fact your ankle rolls while exercises indicates you might want to get this checked out with a podiatrist or orthopedist. Physical therapy or ankle support options may be needed.
