How to Manage Friction Blisters – Article by Dr. Doug Richie in Podiatry Today

Doug Richie, Jr., DPM, FACFAS, FAAPSM, wrote an excellent article in the June, 2010 issue of Podiatry Today entitled: How to Manage Friction Blisters. The article provides an overview of friction blister pathomechanics, misconceptions about friction blisters, shoe fit, insoles, and socks, and blister treatment tips. The article also explains how shear forces contribute to blister formation by causing the top three layers of the epidermis to separate from the stratum spinosum.
