How do blisters happen?
Most blisters form when your skin rubs against your shoes or socks repeatedly over time. The damaged upper layer of skin shears away from the layers beneath and fluid collects in the space to create a firm bubble under the skin  - forming the dreaded blister. They develop very quickly, can take several days to heal, and if they break open they can become infected, making the pain even worse.

Blisters develop most frequently in the summer because on hot, humid days our feet tend to swell up from water retention, causing our shoes to squeeze our feet in certain areas. Feet also get sweatier in the summer. So, when your feet are both swollen and sweaty it’s a dangerous combination, ripe for foot friction.

How to Treat Blisters on Your Feet
There’s lots of activities that can cause blisters too. In ill-fitting shoes, activities like running, fitness, or even golfing and gardening can lead to painful blisters from repetitive movements. Hikers get them frequently, especially when their socks get wet, causing friction in their hiking boots. Any activity that requires a lot of walking, like visiting an amusement park with your family, or a day of shopping can be ruined with shoes that are more chic than comfortable. Going out for a night on the town? You don’t want to wake up with blisters the next morning. Taking a big holiday soon? Watch out! All that walking and sightseeing can leave you feeling cultured, but they can also lead to painful feet.

How to Treat Blisters
Once a blister forms, you should treat it quickly to minimise the pain and prevent infection. If a blister is not properly treated, you can expose yourself to a risk of infection or slow down the healing process.
After gently cleaning the area, apply a specialist blister plaster to cushion the blister from harmful pressure and friction, and protect the wound from bacteria and dirt. Try to avoid wearing anything that irritates the area. It is best not to burst a blister but if it does open up, clean it gently with mild soapy water, if possible soak it in a salt water foot bath for 10 minutes and then cover with a fresh specialist blister plaster. Blisters can ruin a day, but with a COMPEED® anti-blister stick or blister plasters on hand, you can save the day and keep on walking.

Blisters Hydrocolloid Plasters: a first choice treatment for blisters

Blisters are a very common skin condition, but they can bring any good day to a halt. One of the most effective ways to heal blisters fast and get you back on track is with specialist cushioned plasters. Hydrocolloid blister plasters have been proven to consistently outperform standard plasters in terms of pain relief, weartime, cushioning and satisfaction. In a recent international study(1), researchers compared the effectiveness of Compeed hydrocolloid blister plasters to standard plasters for the treatment of foot blisters. Here, you will discover why hydrocolloid plasters are a preferred option than standard plasters when it comes to treating painful blisters.

Hydrocolloid Plasters vs. Standard Plasters: The Results Have Spoken

Normal activities like breaking in new shoes and participating in sporting activities should not mean having to suffer with painful and often debilitating blisters. Hydrocolloid plasters have been shown to be an effective solution for such annoyances and possess important advantages over regular plasters. It's time to examine how Compeed and regular plasters stack up.

Pain relief
Whether you are an avid hiker or enjoy working in your garden, painful blisters on your feet can put a damper on your favourite activities. Compeed’s Hydrocolloid plasters are an effective solution for blisters because they offer greater pain relief than standard plasters(1). In addition, when treating blisters with Compeed blister plasters, blister sufferers were more likely to report immediate pain relief which was significantly better than when using ordinary plasters.

Compeed Hydrocolloid plasters provide more pain relief than standard plasters.

Weartime and adhesion
The last thing you want to worry about when you are out and about is changing your plaster multiple times a day. The study has(1) shown that Compeed’s specialist cushioned plasters stay put twice as long as their standard plaster counterparts because they were designed to stay in place for days. This is important because changing your plaster less frequently helps facilitate healing, hydrocolloid blister plasters are once again the better choice as they need to be changed less often than standard plasters.

Time to healing
Draining or breaking your blister bears the risk of infection, so the primary goal to accelerate the healing of the blister would be to leave it intact as long as possible. If the skin is broken, there is often a common misconception that it should be exposed to the air to help it heal faster but moisture is needed to create the optimal healing environment. An advantage provided by Compeed blister plasters is that compared to standard plasters, Compeed offers an optimal healing environment; hydrocolloid blister plasters absorb excess fluid, aiding the body’s natural wound healing process.

Cushioning
Specialist Compeed plasters offer more comfort when you need it the most. The statistics speak for themselves, almost 2x more people rated Compeed’s hydrocolloid cushioning as excellent versus regular plasters; with 73.4% of hydrocolloid plaster users rating excellent cushioning compared to 38.8% of standard plaster users.
