BLISTERS ARE VERY PREDICTABLE.  TAKE THREE ELEMENTS, MOISTURE, FRICTION AND HEAT, COMMON TO YOUR FEET WHEN YOU RUN, AND THE LIKELIHOD THAT A BLISTER APPEARING IS HIGH.  THE LONGER THESE ELEMENTS EXIST ON THE FEET, UNATTENDED TO, THE GREATER THE RISK.  WHAT CAN WE DO  TO REDUCE ONE OR MORE OF THESE ELEMENTS

THE FIRST OPTION TO REDUCING BLISTERS ARE USING PROPER SOCKS.  MOISTURE-WICKING SOCKS ARE AVAILABLE FROM MOST SOCK MANUFACTURERS.  LUBRICANTS ARE NEXT ON THE LIST.  VAELINE IS STILL THE BEST AGE-OLD STANDBY.  MANY RUNNERS USE BAG BALM, A SALVE WITH HEALING POWERS.  NEWER STATE-OF-THE-ART LUBRICANTS MAY CONTAIN SILICONE, PAIN-RELIEVING BENZOCAINE, OR ANTIFRICTION POLYMERS.  SOMETIMES THE SKIN IS TOO TENDER FOR A LUBRICANT AND A POWDER MAY BE IN ORDER.

THIS BLOG ON BLISTERS WILL BE CONTINUED IN MY NEXT BLOG.
