BLIS­TERS

If you can’t bear the dis­com­fort of a blis­ter, fol­low the doc­tor’s or­ders for a gen­tle fix.

“Punc­ture it with a ster­ile nee­dle and ex­press the fluid into gauze or tis­sue. Leave the ‘roof’ of the blis­ter in place — it will be­have as a bi­o­log­i­cal dress­ing while skin heals un­der­neath and will shed in time — and keep it cov­ered,” says Dr. Richer. To side­step fu­ture blis­ters, don’t sac­ri­fice fit for style, and limit time in brand new pairs to start.
