What heals blisters?

Blisters are a real pain in the…well, I won’t say it. But if you’ve ever experienced one of these pesky little bumps on your skin, you know just how frustrating they can be. Whether caused by new shoes or an annoying burn, blisters can really put a damper on your day-to-day life. So what can you do to heal them? In this article, we’ll explore some of the most effective methods for healing blisters and getting back to feeling like yourself again.

Introduction

Before we dive into how to heal blisters, let’s take a quick glance at what exactly they are. Blisters form when the top layer of your skin separates from the lower layers due to friction or burning. Fluid then fills that gap as your body tries to protect the area underneath. Nice try body, but sometimes that fluid needs a little extra help getting out (we’re looking at you large blister on our heel).

The Do’s and Don’ts

First things first: there are definitely some “do’s” and “don’ts” when it comes to treating blisters properly.

DO:

  • Keep it clean – wash with soap and water everyday
  • Cover it up- avoid letting air get around
  • Take breaks- too much pressure will only cause more friction

DON’T:

  • Pop it! – while oh-so satisfying in movies
  • Wear tight clothes-bothersome rubbing
  • Peel off dead skin-shift crucial protection

Treatments

Okay okay enough groundwork; let’s get down to business! Here are five treatments worth trying out:

1) Compeeds – These magical little pads work wonders in creating an instant soother over any existing sore areas

2) Aloe Vera Gel – This jell is not just great soothing those sunburned shoulders —it can also be used as an ointment on blisters

3) Potatoes? Yep you heard that right they are a surprisingly effective treatment for blisters. Try crushing up a raw potato and applying it onto the blister or just trimming off sure extra energy from the skin.

4) Band-aids with Vitamin E- A band aid full of nutrients, perfect to help support your body’s natural healing process.

5) Ice – this one might seem obvious but no harm in reminding anyone who has forgotten! Cold therapy helps reduce swelling aiding faster relief..

Well folks that is our wrap-up of how to heal blisters. While uncomfortable, we hope these tips offer you some quick options when life decides to give you lemons (make lemonade-not a blister.) Remember, No Matter How tough things may feel”feet sweaty > shoes too tight> new sock causing friction>Blisters growing….”“this too shall pass…”
