THE RISING MERCURY BRINGS THE TELLTALE SIGN OF SUMMER:  BAND-AIDS SLAPPED OVER FOOT BLISTERS.  EVEN SEEMINGLY COMFORTABLE SUMMER SHOES CAN CAUSE THEM.  DR. BRYAN CALDWELL, ASSISTANT DEAN OF CLINICAL EDUCATION AT OHIO'S KENT STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF PODIATRIC MEDICINE, DISCUSSES TREATMENT OF SMALL BLISTERS.

THE RECOMMENDATION FOR SMALL BLISTERS IS TO LEAVE THEM ALONE.  BUT THAT IS NOT ALWAYS PRACTICAL SAYS PODIATRIST CALDWELL.AND WHO'S TO SAY THAT IT WON'T BURST ON ITS OWN?  SO, TYPICALLY, AS LONG AS THE PATIENT IS NOT A DIABETIC, WE SAY THAT IF YOU GET A PAINFUL BLISTER, GET A NEEDLE AND HEAT UP THE END TO STERILIZE IT, CLEANSE THE AREA WITH RUBBING ALCOHOL, PUT A SMALL HOLE ON THE UPPER SKIN, THE ROOF, OF THE BLISTER.  ONCE IT IS DRY, PUT SOME NEOSPORIN AND A BAND-AID ON IT.

MOST TORONTO FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING TORONTO FOOT DOCTORS, TORONTO CHIROPODISTS AND TORONTO PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT YOU SHOULD CONSULT A FOOT SPECIALIST IF THE PROBLEM PERSISTS OR THE FIRST SIGNS OF INFECTION.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY YOUR TORONTO FOOT SPECIALIST AND TORONTO CHIROPODIST, MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE AND THE TEAM FROM ACAEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
