Description: Thandie NewtonLots of stars leave events with pain causing heels in hand, but that’s not the case with actress Thandie Newton, according to “Style News Now, People.” “The thing about blisters is that, if you get a blister it’s good. The skin in that area is going to toughen up, so it actually means your feet have been wounded and healed to wear those specific shoes,” said Newton at the Cinema for Peace Foundation gala in Beverly Hills. According to Newton a callus form on the area where the shoes rub and that so happens to be the case with her, breaking into new kicks. “I always welcome the blister – it’s like the labor for birth.”

Having blisters on your feet can cause discomfort, and lead to pain. If you believe you have a foot blister and are experiencing pain the affected area it is best to seek a podiatrist such as Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Dr. Stein can examine your feet and work with you to provide the appropriate treatment options to ensure safe foot recovery.

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.
