I just got a pair of new boots and have been wearing them for two days, all day. I let my feet dry out at night after I take them off. It's only on one foot though, the spots and athletes foot.
Blisters occur when feet get hot & sweaty. The rubbing of the foot to the shoe or socks may cause irritation and may lead to build up of fluid between layers of skin to protect the area. It is important to keep the area clean and dry to prevent infection.
Athlete's foot treatment involves antifungal creams and washes. Many antifungal medications are available and should generally be continued for four weeks, or at least one week after all of the skin symptoms have cleared. If it persists, it would be best to see your doctor for further evaluation and management.
Take care and keep us posted.
Hi Rowena. I use anti fungal powder for the athletes foot. I don't think they're blisters as I was in the Royal Navy and did a lot of marching and hiking and had my fair share of those.
If it's just blocked pores or even a fungal condition, I can deal with it myself. I just thought it might be a sign of something more serious, as I've never seen this before.
I've left my shoes and socks off today and one of them is going already and there doesn't appear to be more springing up which they would if it was fungal right?
Thanks for your response and please comment further if I am totally wrong.
PS - That photo I posted seems too small to see what they are. Can you see the large version I posted and not that thumbnail? I can post a link to a larger version if you want. Thanks again.
