If you’ve ever gone for a long walk and ended the day with a painful excruciating blister on your feet; you probably went walking with shoes that didn’t fit well that caused friction between your shoes and feet. This friction caused a tear under the outer layer of skin, where fluid could leak through and form a blister. If the blister are not treated, they could become infected. The first to do, since it is not feasible to continue walking without attempting to get rid of the blister, is get rid of the blister.

How to Get Rid of Blister on Feet

You can begin the process of healing the blister by not wearing the uncomfortable shoes that caused the blister, especially not while the blister is still healing. It is best not to pop a blister, but if you must make sure your hands are sterilized and the instrument used to pop the blister is sterile. Use alcohol to sterilize a needle before popping the blister. If the blister is not infected, that is oozing yellow pus, squeeze out the clear fluid and place a bandage over the blister and allow it to heal. Most blister will dry out on their own and heal in time if they are no longer irritated, which is rarely the case with blisters on the feet.

Another course of action that illustrates how to get rid of blisters on feet is to cover the blister with molesking tape during the day or while at work or school and remove the moleskin each evening or whenever you’re at home to allow the blister to breath. You may be asking where do you get moleskin tape. Moleskin tape is commonly sold in the over-the-counter drug section of large retail supermarkets. It is usually sold in small rolls. The goal is to allow the blister to heal naturally. As the blister dries up the skin will lie flat once again and there will be not indication that a blister was there.

Many people use various methods to encourage healing of a blister, but the safest and most effective method is to let the blister heal itself. How to get rid of blisters on feet begins with you being responsible for keeping the area clean allowing the blister the environment in which to heal. Stop wearing the tight or otherwise uncomfortable shoes that caused the blister in the first place. Keep the area from repeated friction. Cover it with padding. If you decide to pop it, use a bandage. If you decide not to pop it, use the thicker moleskin. In about a week the blister should dry up and begin healing itself.
