How do I treat a blister?

New runners usually get blisters because their feet are not used to running and haven't had a chance to toughen up, or because they are wearing new running shoes which haven't yet been broken in. To avoid blisters, ensure your feet are dry so they don't move around in the running shoe, and wear insoles if necessary to give a smoother fit.

Buying moisture control or sweat-wicking running socks rather than cotton or wool ones will also help. The most important step is to make sure your running shoes fit properly. Seek advice from a specialist running store. Running shoes that are too tight may cramp your feet whereas shoes that are too lose will cause your feet to slide.
