Linda: I get blisters on the back of my feet and sometimes my hands from working out. Sometimes I have to miss workouts because the rubbing on them hurts so bad. What is the best way to treat a blister?
Megan: You need to be sure to prevent more rubbing against the blister. Make sure the area is clean. After the liquid has come out of the blister, apply petroleum jelly and cover it with a bandage. There is no miracle cure to speed up the healing but you can also use aloe vera and coconut oil to hydrate the blister and to help with inflammation. Hopefully you can find an alternative workout to do in the meantime while the blister heals. Make sure when you feel the slightest bit of rubbing that you adjust your activity to prevent getting blisters. That might mean wearing gloves or shoes that fit just a bit better for you.
