Succesfull Oxfam Trailwalker group finish!

It’s fantastic to see so many people accomplish an amazing achievement by completing the OXFAM Trailwalker event. Unfortunately, not everyone who starts is able to finish. Every year large numbers of people are forced to pull out due to injuries, illness, fatigue or severe blistering.

Sadly I’ve seen this first-hand working on course as a Podiatry volunteer. Whilst we as Podiatrist’s and Podiatry students, do everything we can to keep participants going, there is only so much we can do to reduce the pain associated with severe blisters.

Treatment for Blisters on Feet

At one point in life, every one of us has suffered from blisters on your feet. A blister is a small fluid bubble that is seen under the surface of the skin. They are filled with clear fluid called serum, and are usually caused by rubbing, irritation or pressure on the skin.

This article will briefly cover what foot blisters are, how they are formed and what can be done to treat them.
