Blood blister: You need to keep pressure off the area. Use moleskin and cut a circle in it to put over the area. Then cut a second and third moleskin in the same way. Then the pressure will be on the moleskin and not on the blood blister. If this cdoes not relieve the symptoms, see your doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
Foot felt a bit painful and I discovered I have a blood blister on the ball of the foot. What's the best way to treat it a blister plaster?
Protect it: An unpopped blister represents a closed sterile environment. Yes on occasion one can become infected then it is time to open it, however the risk of infection in a dressed open wound is still higher than that of an intact blister. The blister will gradually resolve with time.See 1 more doctor answer

Big Toe Blister: Blisters on the bottom of toes are most often caused by friction. They occur a lot in runners, fitness enthusiasts, and in those who wear poorly fitting shoes. Blister pads or moleskin can be applied to reduce friction and pressure. Wearing socks is also helpful. Avoid high heel shoes and shoes that are narrow in the toe box. If the blister ruptures, apply antibiotic ointment and a bandage.

Blister: These are caused by friction. Either from an ill fitting shoe or walking excessively without good foot protection. Make sure when you are walking any distance that you have the proper shoes. No running track in sandals. Do not take the ski off the blister it acts as a sterile covering. A moleskin circle around the blister will take pressure off that area. A podiatrist is helpful.

It IS related: She must see a doctor as soon as possible. If she can't get an appointment, she should go the the emergency room. This is a major problem, even though it might not look as though it is. There is probably a deep infection that will have to be treated with surgery. If untreated, it could end up with an amputation.See 2 more doctor answers
