Blisters are fluid-filled lesions caused by friction and pressure. As anyone who has ever experienced a blister knows, it can be extremely unpleasant, painful and debilitating. 

Blisters are usually the result of one or a combination of the following causes:

  • Ill-fitting footwear
  • Stiff shoes
  • Socks that have wrinkled against the skin
  • Excessive moisture
  • Foot deformities

Along with our in-depth advice, and, if needed, treatments, we also mould and manufacture custom-made insoles at our onsite orthotics lab. If deemed a suitable option, we can mould and manufacture your custom-made insoles within 24 hours. 

If you suffer from other more serious health conditions such as diabetes, it’s likely that blisters may not heal quite so easily. In such cases, it’s recommended you book an appointment with one of the friendly and experienced podiatrists at Footfocus Podiatry

We believe good health starts from the feet up. And even something as relatively simple as a blister can impact your overall health in terms of the temporary loss of mobility from a sore foot. Even the tiniest blister can stop you enjoying an active lifestyle. That’s why we want to keep your feet in good health moving forward.

At Footfocus Podiatry, we offer blister treatment and also advise you on how to prevent them from forming again in the future. 

We have extensive clinical knowledge and, due to our expertise in sports podiatry and the various long-distance running and walking activities our Footfocus podiatrists love to do, we have tactical knowledge too! 

When you attend our clinic with a blister, or if you need advice on how to prepare for a long-distance event, we will guide you through everything you are likely to encounter — helping you to stay pain-free throughout. 

We want to help you continue to live the life you want, fulfil whatever adventure you choose and achieve any goal you set. 

Book a Podiatry appointment if you’re planning a long-distance run and want to be free of blisters throughout your challenge, or if you want helpful and proactive tips on how to avoid blisters in the future.
