Blisters and Basketball

Wednesday, 14 December 2022 00:00

Blisters can develop on the feet for any number of reasons and there are several different kinds of blisters that may form. Blisters may form in response to repeated pressure or friction on the feet while an individual is playing basketball. If a basketball player is wearing inadequate footwear, then this may also cause blisters. Importantly, blisters are composed of a layer of skin that produces a watery kind of pus. If you have blisters from basketball, it is important to take care of your feet so that the blisters can heal. You might also try to prevent future blisters from developing by wearing basketball shoes that provide enough room in the shoes. You might even be sure to wear socks that properly cover the feet. Contact a podiatrist today for information about blisters from basketball.

Blisters may appear as a single bubble or in a cluster. They can cause a lot of pain and may be filled with pus, blood, or watery serum. If your feet are hurting, contact one of our podiatrists of Advanced Foot & Ankle Associates, PLLC. Our doctors can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Foot Blisters

Foot blisters are often the result of friction. This happens due to the constant rubbing from shoes, which can lead to pain.

What Are Foot Blisters?

A foot blister is a small fluid-filled pocket that forms on the upper-most layer of the skin. Blisters are filled with clear fluid and can lead to blood drainage or pus if the area becomes infected.


(Blister symptoms may vary depending on what is causing them)

  • Bubble of skin filled with fluid
  • Redness
  • Moderate to severe pain
  • Itching

Prevention & Treatment

In order to prevent blisters, you should be sure to wear comfortable shoes with socks that cushion your feet and absorb sweat. Breaking a blister open may increase your chances of developing an infection. However, if your blister breaks, you should wash the area with soap and water immediately and then apply a bandage to the affected area. If your blisters cause severe pain it is important that you call your podiatrist right away.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of our offices located in Lake Worth and Aledo/Willow Park, TX . We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot care needs.
