We have all had the experience of new shoes causing blisters on our feet. If your shoes fit correctly, they should not cause blisters at all. Blisters occur when a soft pocket of raised skin fills with clear liquid. They can be incredibly painful if located on the bottom of your foot and can make it difficult to walk. You should not pop a blister; wait for it to heal on its own. If the blister bursts, you're at risk for picking up an infection, so apply antibiotic ointment to the area and cover it with a bandage to protect the skin.
