foot blistersVirginia Military Institute alumni Maj. Todd Pegg and Kirby Smith were participants in a tradition that dates back several decades.  Since 1970, VMI students marched on the path similar to the one taken in 1864 from the Lexington to the Battle of New Market. The assignment is not easy, and depending on the weather and other factors, it can even be brutal. But it’s a tradition, and carrying on the history is important, Smith said.

According to Pegg the task was unbearable due to the blisters on the feet and heat from the wool uniforms.  The path used to be unpaved, Pegg stated, which added its own challenges. Currently, walking on the side of the road along the incline rising up to the shoulder of U.S. 11 is very uncomfortable. A third classman who participated in the march was seen soothing his tired feet at the Frontier Cultural Museum in Staunton after a long day of marching.

Whether you’re outdoors strolling for a walk, or even running, foot blisters can be preventable and treatable. If you have blisters on the feet, see podiatrist Dr. Michael A. Stein, DPM of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Dr. Stein can treat your podiatric needs.  

Blisters on the Feet

When tight or ill-fitting footwear is worn, many times a foot blister may develop. Blisters can even develop by constant rubbing from the shoe, often times leading to pain.

What is a Foot Blister?

A foot blister is a small pocket that is filled with fluid, forming on the upper most layer of the skin. Blisters are filled with clear fluid, and may lead to drainage of blood or pus if the area has become infected.

How do they Form?

Blisters of the feet are almost always the result of shoe rubbing and constant friction of the skin and material. Long periods of walking in shoes, sandals, or boots which don’t fit properly can result in a blister. Those who often have moisture or humidity in the feet, are prone to blister formation easily.

Prevention & Treatment

Proper care is vital to alleviate pain and prevent infection to the affected area of the foot. The best treatment is to leave them alone. New skin will develop under the blister and during the healing stages, your blister will pop.

-  Do not lance the blister , which can lead to infection
