Foot Conditions A-Z

Toe Blisters

Blisters occur on the feet in areas where the outer layer of skin (epidermis) is subjected to repeated contact friction or shear forces. Those areas can differ based on the type of activity you’re doing, and other factors, including:

  •     Amount of shear
  •     External loads (such as a backpack)
  •     Presence of moisture
  •     Skin characteristics
  •     Foot type (high arch, low arch, or medium arch)
  •     Type of footwear
  •     Fit of your shoes or boots
