Answers for Dancers - January 2016

This month, Blister Busters

Toe pads help but there is more to blister care than stuffing shoes full of padding.

    1. Get professionally fitted. Feet change over time so last year's maker may not be for you If sudden blisters appear.
    2. Before putting on tights dab Vaseline on hammertoes and bunions to reduce friction.
    3. Wear tights that absorb sweat.
    4. Don't smoke! This weakens the skin.
    5. Once the blister has burst, air it, put antibiotic ointment on and before wearing pointe shoes place a donut-shaped pad over the trouble spot.

If still painful, you might consider cutting an X in pointe shoes to relieve pressure.
