Explore the Nuances of Timely Help

Are you an athlete who is prone to blisters? Or are you a hiker who gets blisters while walking long distances? Occurring due to friction on the skin, blisters can develop due to rubbing of sports equipment, shoes, socks and clothing on the skin. Beginning with warmth accompanied by redness on the skin which is known as a 'hot spot', fluid fills up the area between the two uppermost layers of the skin forming a bubble with the skin protecting the blister from further irritation due to rubbing. Athletes and sports people often suffer from blisters though there are ways and means to avoid this painful condition. The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry near San Jose, California are skilled experts in problems of the feet and take measures to prevent uncomfortable conditions of the feet so their patients can preserve their original way of life and enjoy every day activities.

As most athletes, hikers, sports and games enthusiasts get blisters due to strenuous or continuous activities, blisters can also occur on the palms of the hands, the heels and the soles of the feet. As a common occurrence, anyone can get blisters due to friction with clothing, shoes, sports equipment and socks which occur in moist and warm conditions. The podiatrists at the clinic in Cupertino diagnose the condition and pay detailed attention to the affected areas with care and timely help. In some cases, blisters can be caused by fungal infections, burns and/or allergic reactions. But one of the common causes is hiking when the feet get moist and sweaty and as a result the socks tend to stick to the feet and rub against the sides of the shoes. The area that is affected due to friction turns red followed by irritation. When this happens the lymphatic fluid flows to the region that is affected and gathers between the layers of the skin to protect it. The friction site forms a bubble which turns into a blister. This condition can also occur when hikers' and/or walkers' shoes, boots and socks get wet when it rains or when crossing a stream.
