Friction against skin from shoe gear, will cause rubbing resulting in blisters (quick, high frequency friction) or corns/calluses (slow, low grade friction). Prominent bony spots will be the areas that typically get the blisters or corns and calluses. Tight/improperly fitting shoes can cause the friction and increased perspiration which keeps the foot wet can increase the friction causing these rub spots. Typically blister products found at the pharmacy, will protect the “hot” spot and help with reducing the pain. Certain “anti-sweat” socks and/or skin lubrication will help to prevent the friction problem as well. If shoe size is not evaluated properly, the skin can get irritated causing these conditions.
