Blisters: How to get rid of blisters

What is a blister?

  • Blisters are caused by damage from friction to the upper skin layers  (e.g. Rubbing of the heel against the shoe)
  • Fluid (serum) collects between skin layers forming a “bubble”
  • Can be painful when the top layer of skin is removed

Blisters treatment

  • Remove the source of friction, e.g. ill fitting shoe rubbing the skin
  • Leave blisters intact
  • Select a dressing to cushion and protect the area such as ALLEVYN Thin
  • For larger blisters, consider the use of ALLEVYN Adhesive

See your doctor if the blister is restricting movement or causing pressure.

Refer to a health care professional if the patient has underlying medical conditions.
