Toe Rubbing Against Shoes
Can cause corns...: Corns are callouses on the toes and are caused mainly by shoe irritation over a period of time. They can just be trimmed by a podiatrist, but will usually come back.

I got a blister in my toe from rubbing on my shoes while walking for hours. Is this infected? Pic is in my file. It's red but not sore anymore.
Blister/ingrown: If its truly just a blister it is completely sterile inside the bubble. Since nothing has gotten in nothing gets out. Leave it be and it will reabsorb and form a callus where it was. Protect it from popping with band-aid. If it is an ingrown nail (or you see it along side the nail) then it could be infected and you should apply an antibiotic cream and see a podiatrist immediately to care for it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
