well ive had an annoying and sometimes painful blister on the sole of my right foot. it feels uncomfortable to walk. ive never had these before so i have no idea what it is. its tough like a callouse but its transparent in the center. i showed my mom and she says it reminds her of a fish eye. cause its a whitish around the outside and clear in the center. ive been keeping it clean but it wont go away. ive tried popping it but i cant cause the surface is so tough. its not spreading so im not really worried but just wanted to know if anyone has had these?

Oh! I'm so glad someone posted this because I have the same problem! Except mine is more severe. Is yours itchy? I hope not, because if they're anything like mine- it's an extreme nuisance. And it can even hurt your feet when you're standing or walking.

"Blisters on the feet can be prevented by wearing comfortable, well-fitting shoes and clean socks. Blisters are more likely to develop on skin that is moist, so moisture-absorbing socks or frequent sock changes will aid those with particularly sweaty feet."

If it spreads, you might need to see a doctor for topical treatment.

mines not itchy, ive seen pictures of blisters and they look squishy lol mines sorta looks like a tiny foot ulcer. i have no idea how i got it but its gone now but for a month i couldnt walk. it hurts when i put pressure on it and when id lift my leg the pressure would build till i was literally almost crying from it. i just had to grit my teeth and scrape off the top outter layer until the center was open. then it bled a little. i let it dry out and the next day i applyed a callouse removal balm. for 2 weeks and until yesterday i was able to scrape off the last layer and now its pink and i dont have a hole on my foot! yay i can finally walk. lol

help 4 u
I have one too, and I went to the Doc and he said it is a planters wart. I have done so much to rid this awful curse, stuck a needle in, scraped, and so on. But he said the only way to rid this problem, is get wart remover(acid kind) and scrap the calius away til soft skin, apply the acid, and let dry-don't know bout a bandaid or not, but do this every night getting out of the shower and should be gone after several weeks.

Blisters form when liquid becomes trapped between layers of skin. The result is a bubble of fluid under the skin on your foot. These bubbles may form due to an infection, disease or sunburn but usually it is the result of an irritation. Constant rubbing tears the skin allowing fluids to enter underneath your skin and form a bubble. Although tempted to burst these little suckers, the best method is to let the blister heal on its own.

Foot blisters
Hi all, I have been getting blister type irritations on the bottom of my feet only in the last couple of years. I am 53 now. It's only my left foot now. Starts off as a tiny lump then get bigger by the day and raised as a normal blister would look. The liquid under the skin isn't as clear or watery as a normal blister. I have one now that is about 8mm across and with a shoe on and walking is a nuisance. If left they eventually flatten and then seem to darken and scab under the skin and that can be picked off and you wouldn't know that anything was there. My doc wasn't sure thought that it could be a bacteria thing like tinea. They don't seem to be life threatening just a damn nuisence. Regards Geoff

Ive never been on these forums before but after suffering for 6 months with scaly dry skin on sole of one foot with recurring blisters out of desperation I had a look to see if there was any advice online, my gp has prescribed every cream avaiable and tablets which have done nothing, he has now referred me to a specialist as there has been no change its even getting wosrse however after reading some advice on this site I tried a suggestion given, for the past 3 days I have been rubbing the gel from an Aloe Vera Plant on the affected area and its definitly working Ive had no blisters for the last 2 days and the skin is looking less red and sore, hopefully if I carry on it will go completely. I dont know what it is I have but this seems to be working, I would highly recommend trying it out! Hope this helps someone

I to have been getting these recurring small red itchy bumps that then blister and turn quite sore. The skin eventually peels away. Intensely itchy in beginning and quite sore one blistered.
At the momment the whole bottom of my left foot is covered with little bumps, with one huge 2-3cm painful blister. Another huge blister on the outer edge.
I have found in the past that when I am rundown it errupts but never this severe.
Antihistimine seems to help. Salt baths help. Every cream and concoction has been used to no avail.
I think I need to see a Podiatrist or Dermatoligist.

Does getting pedicures causes the blisters?
I too have blisters on the bottom of my right feet, though they are not itchy or painful they are annoying. Is this a medical condition? I do not wear tight shoes and only wear a pair of socks no more than one day. When the blister dry I am able to peel the skin with no problem. Is there a medical advice one can follow to prevent the blisters from occurring.

Is it also true that flip flop shoes can cause these blisters?

Yes flip flops can cause blisters. I have one on my foot and it was from my flip flops.

Blisters
If blisters on palms and soles with some on the sides of hands and feet, I suffered for 15 years. For some of us with alergies this is an overactive immune system. Mine triggers bad on raw cashews. Watch what your eating.

Topical creams didn't help, also Never pop blisters... You risk infection, that landed me in the hospital once. Wear clean socks and change a lot. Non colored socks.

Best solution for me...

Prednisone pills. 5 day one, 4 day four, three day three, down to 1 and your blisters should dry, skin soften and hopefully clear and repair till the next outbreak.

At times both my feet had small bumps that grew and fused together till I had one big blister covering each of my soles.

Prednisone was prescribed by a doctor and has to be, see your physician and ask for it.

It is a steroid but if you are like me it's mild use maybe twice a year is a life changer for the better.

Hope this helps

i also have, not just one. At first i seek medical help and advised me to remove it, but due to my job, i wasn't able to. And the thing i did was i get a foot brush, it has a sharp metal on the side and on the other side is a soft one. I always do it after shower, and the blister vanished. Guys, you may try this, it did work on me....

Itchy spots on sole of foot
I have the exact same problem. They keep appearing and itch like crazy-even keeping me awake! Weird little spots, and I have no idea why they,ve started appearing! At first I thought they were mosquito bites, as I holidayed in Greece, but I'm still getting them! Would love to know what they are.

I have had a blister type thing on foot come and go for ages. I finally went to the doctor and they did not know what it was and I had it surgically removed last week and the biopsy was a ganglion. Now I checked the net for pics and see that is exactly what it was.. most painful... On the other foot on the sole I had recurring blisters with red lines running from them and they changed location plus soreness in the joint at my foot approx halfway down along the side. I had these checked for potential hookworm infestations but the doc said no, then I see similar pics on the ganglion page and the red lines are the canal leading to the joint where the fluid is coming from to fill the blister.. hope this helps some others
