Blister & Corn

Q- How do I treat blisters on my feet?


A blister is a small pocket of body fluid within the upper layer of the skin. A blister can be caused due to forceful rubbing or friction, freezing, burning, chemical exposure, or either due to some disease. Blisters are formed by the uppermost layer of the skin, epidermis to protect the inner layers of the skin. The main objective of the blister is to protect and provide cushion support to the inner layers. Mostly, these blisters are filled with clear fluids but in other cases, plasma, serum, blood, or pus could be found. Serums have some protective substances like antibodies as it is the liquid part of the blood. Amongst the most common causes of a blister, the first cause is forceful rubbing or friction. ●Friction is caused when a forceful rubbing is caused due to walking or running. Blister occurs when the temperature inside a shoe is relatively warm and it may also occur when the condition is damp (wetness inside the shoes). Blister if not treated properly may lead to serious issues like ulceration and some other diseases. ●A blister is caused due to wearing uncomfortable shoes. Waling or running in these shoes and bearing heavyweight may lead to blisters. ●Wearing uncomfortable heels may lead to blisters as most of the weight of the body is carried by a single portion of the foot, the ball of the foot. ●The blister may occur if a person is wearing shoes with socks or wearing socks that have wrinkles in them. ●When the outer layer of the skins weakens, the person is more vulnerable to Blister. It may be caused by some infectious diseases or disorders. Chickenpox, eczema (itchy blister that appears on the edges of the toes and soles of the feet), diabetic neuropathy or nerve damage, being overweight (increases pressure on the feet), antibiotic treatment and blood-thinning medications. ●Chemical burns may lead to blisters - insect bites and stings, sulfates, cobalt, nickel, chemical solvents or cleaner, skin allergens. Shape crunch provides a solution to get rid of foot blisters. Customized insoles are created by using a 3D Printing mechanism to provide arch support to redistribute the pressure and offloading the area. They help reduce pressure and protect underlying tissues.

The fluid-like blister protects the skin underneath and helps in healing and to prevent infection.

There are three types of corns: Hard Corns: they are small in size and they tend to develop in the hard and dense areas of the skin where the skin is thickened. They develop on the top of the toes wherein, there is bone pressure against the skin. Soft corns: they are whitish or gray and have a soft and rubbery texture. Soft corns develop between the toes. Seed corns: they are small and usually form on the bottom of the feet. Corns and calluses develop due to repeated friction, pressure on the skin, rubbing, or irritation. They usually develop on the hardened part of the skin, the bones, or prominent areas of the feet. They protect the underlying skin from irritation and friction. They are caused to people who already have medical issues like arthritis, bunions, or bone spurs.

Pronation & Supination

Q - What is the difference between Pronation and Supination?


Pronation (low arch) - is the inward roll of the foot during normal walk or motion that occurs at the outer edge of the heel strikes the ground and due to which the foot rolls inward and flattens out. Normal pronation at a mild level would not cause injury, however, if the pronation is a severe level i.e overpronation, it may lead to severe injury in the foot. Supination (High arch) - is contrary to Pronation as it is the outward roll of the foot while walking or normal movement. Mild supination may occur while running and due to distorted gait, the heel lifts off. Whereas, over-supination may occur due to excessive strain on the muscles and tendons that stabilize the ankle and as a result of which the ankle rolls outwards and leads to an ankle sprain or total ligament rupture.
Pronation and Supination can be treated and prevented with orthotic insoles that could provide proper arch support according to the foot problem and distribute the pressure evenly. Shapecrunch provides customized insoles that are created with 3D printing technology to eliminate the pain and to provide better service to the patient.
