Blisters are a closed injury that usually occurs due to inadequate shoes or socks. This is particularly felt by the ladies who place greater emphasis on the appearance of the shoes than their practicality and comfort. Blisters are especially common and troublesome in the summer. As mentioned, the damage caused by blisters occurs due to prolonged friction or rubbing of the skin. Fluid accumulation between the outer and inner layers of the skin results in blister-like protrusions. Rarely do they turn out to be a serious injury, but if not managed properly may infect and force us to a more rigorous treatment.
Home remedies for treatment of blisters
If you have a problem with blisters, these home remedies will help you quickly to get rid of them.
Vitamin E prevents the formation of scars. You should take one capsule of vitamin E and put the oil from the capsule onto the blister. Let it stand for at least 30 minutes. Repeat the procedure every day.
Due to the ingredients it contains, such as mint and baking soda, the toothpaste may help in reduction of the pain caused by blisters. You should put a little toothpaste on the affected area and let it stand for about 2 hours, then remove the toothpaste with lukewarm water and put foot cream.
