Blisters

Heat, moisture and friction are generally the cause of blisters. Blisters can also form from fungal infections, allergic reactions, and burns.

Because of a condition called neuropathy, or nerve damage, diabetes often are unable to detect a burn because there is no pain.

Proper care of blisters should involve draining their fluid but leaving their "skin" intact. Protect with a non-stick bandage with mild compression. Skin sprays and adhesive gel pads, as well as special socks, help minimize friction.


There are currently more web sites on the Internet having to do with foot fetishes than with foot health.
