Blisters Podiatrist Westchester (Rye Brook), New York

Blisters are a very common foot ailment that can easily and quickly be treated by the Podiatrist, David P. Rosenzweig, DPM, at either his Rye Brook (Westchester County), New York.

The most common causes of blisters include friction and burns. Blisters are caused by friction from shoes or clothing which that rub repeatedly on the skin on the foot or toes causing friction burns. As the outer layer of skin separates from the inner layers the space between fills with lymph fluid.

Blisters on the foot are caused by injury, allergic reactions, or infections, which may include the following:

  • Friction (from improper or poorly fitting shoe)
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Impetigo (a contagious infection of the skin)
  • Viral infections (including chickenpox and herpes zoster)
  • Burns / scalds
  • Sunburns

There are two types of blisters:

  • Clear fluid-filled
  • Blood-filled

The blood-filled blisters have been shown to have complete separation of the dermis from the epidermis, whereas the clear fluid-filled blisters demonstrate partial epidermal separation of the epidermis from the underlying dermis.
