Health Tip: Prevent Foot Blisters

(HealthDay News) -- While blisters can occur most anywhere there's friction against the skin, they are commonly associated with the feet.

To help prevent foot blisters, the American Academy of Dermatology suggests:

  • Wear socks that absorb moisture.

  • Make sure your shoes fit properly.

  • Wear moisture-absorbing, loose- fitting clothing. Avoid clothing made from cotton, which can lead to friction and chafing.

  • Apply soft bandages, such as those made from moleskin, to protect problem areas on the feet.

  • Apply powder or petroleum jelly to reduce friction.

  • Stop the current activity right away if you have foot pain or discomfort.
