Blisters

Blisters are usually the result of per­sistent or repeated rubbing against the skin. Some illnesses, such as shingles, cause blister-like rashes.

. Bums can also blister the skin.

Prevention

· Avoid shoes that are too tight or that rub on your feet.

· Wear gloves to protect your hands when doing heavy chores.

Home Treatment

· If a blister is small and closed, leave it alone. Protect it from fur­ther rubbing by applying a loose bandage. Avoid the activity or shoes that caused the blister to form.

· If a small blister is in a weight-bearing area, protect it with a doughnut-shaped moleskin pad. Leave the area over the blister open.

· If a blister is larger than 1 inch across, it is usually best to drain it. The following is a safe method:

o Sterilize a needle with rubbing alcohol.

o Gently puncture the blister at the edge.

o To drain the blister, press the fluid in the blister toward the hole you have made.
· Once you have opened a blister, or if it has torn open:

o Wash the area with soap and water.

o Do not remove the flap of skin covering a blister unless it is very dirty or torn, or if pus is forming under the skin flap. Gently smooth the skin flap flat over the tender skin underneath.

o Apply an antibiotic ointment and a sterile bandage. Do not use alcohol or iodine. They will delay healing.

o ‘Change the bandage once a day to reduce the chance of infection.

o Remove the bandage at night to let the area dry.

When to Call a Health Professional

· If blisters form often and you do not know the cause.

· If signs of infection develop:

o Increased pain, swelling, redness, or tenderness.

Heat or red streaks extending from the blister. Discharge of pus.

o Fever of 37.80C (1000F) or higher with no other cause.

· If you have diabetes or peripheral vascular disease and blisters are forming on your hands, feet, or legs.

What our customers are saying

Absolutely fantastic customer service! I am so pleasantly surprised! Shipping was REALLY fast - I'm in the Middle East and I received my package in just one week. I was provided with lots of awesome samples. Notifications were sent to me to update me on order status. One of the items I ordered was OOS and they shipped all the other items to me first and the OOS item when it was replenished and they paid for the shipping. It is so exciting to have found such a great website that offers such a wide range of brands and products and ships internationally! I am so incredibly thrilled! Will order again and again...please keep up the wonderful work EDS! XD
