Blisters – Make taking a walk a pleasure not a pain
With spring well underway and the sun making an appearance, it’s tempting to get out and get active.
However, when active, it is important to remember to wear the right footwear, protect your skin and not do activity which causes too much friction to the skin. Failing to do these things (amongst others) can lead to skin irritations in the form of blisters.
Pharmacy2u is here to help you prevent blisters from forming and to help heal the pain caused if they arrive.
Did you know…
- A blister is a small pocket of fluid in the upper skin layers and is one of the body’s responses to injury or pressure
The feet are particularly prone to blisters. Ill-fitting shoes or friction can damage the skin, and a blister forms to cushion the area from further damage as it heals.
- Unpopped, the body gradually absorbs the fluid as the underlying skin recovers.This can take around one week or so.
Depending on the cause and location, a blister can range from the size of a pinprick to three centimetres or more in diameter.
A blood blister is usually caused by a severe pinch or bruise to the skin that breaks the tiny blood vessels (capillaries).
