Wear antiblister socks to prevent and treat your blisters

One of the challenges from exercising and working out especially running, walking, cycling or anything that involves your feet - is coping with blisters. Blisters while not life threatening, adds to the uphill struggle to stay fit and get healthy.

Some athletes and keep fit enthusiasts feel virtuous breaking the pain barrier. I’m not one of them. Nevertheless, blisters on your feet shouldn't be a reason to give up the struggle to stay fit. But, there's only so much discomfort you can take before you decide to put the running shoes or trainers out to pasture or in the shoe cupboard to collect dust.

Blisters are filled with serum, which is essentially blood plasma without fibrinogens (the red blood cells and clotting agents are removed). However, some blisters may be filled with blood (blood blisters) - if they become infected or inflamed they can also be filled with pus, according to Medical News Today.

Three elements need to be in place for blisters to flourish, moisture, friction and heat. All present on your feet when you’re wearing trainers or running shoes.

Unless you’re into barefoot trainers, you can’t really avoid the three elements above. So what can you do to reduce the incidence of suffering with blisters on your feet? Wear Anti-blisters socks.
