Blisters shouldn't be ignored, covered with a band-aid, and forgotten. If left untreated, blisters can become infected requiring a trip to the doctor.
Aside from causing localized pain and burning sensations, infected blisters can also cause a multitude of health-related issues including bacterial infections in the bloodstream.
If you lead an active lifestyle, your best option is to prevent blisters before they start by joining =PR= DC and Dr. Monique Renee Rolle of Lansdowne Podiatry for a “Banish Blisters” workshop on 9/15 at 12:30 pm. While there may be more than one way to get a blister, there are at least as many ways to prevent and treat the fluid-filled bubbles. Dr. Rolle will discuss some of the more proven blister prevention and treatment methods that she has utilized during her career in the medical profession.
Dr. Rolle will field questions you may have about blisters or calluses during the workshop.
Space is limited, so RSVP today.
