We all love shoes and tend to have too many pairs – some of which do not fit correctly. The ones that we love most can turn out to be the ones that hurt our feet the most. But it is possible to make shoes fit better and prevent painful blisters from friction. Here are some practical solutions for increased foot comfort, no matter what kind of shoes you wear.

What it does

Elastoplast Blister Plaster’s are able to immediately relieve the pain caused by a blister and continuous friction on your feet. Apply it on a blister that already exists, or one that is about to form. It will cushion the affected area and even protect an open blister from infection and dirt.

Elastoplast Blister Plaster will help ease the pressure-induced pain instantly, protect the blister from further friction and pressure, and also accelerate its healing process.

How does it do it?

Based on advanced hydrocolloid technology, Elastoplast Blister Plaster will create an optimal wound healing environment, known to support and speed up healing. The extra strong adhesion of Elastoplast Blister plaster will also make sure the plaster stays in place.

How to use it

Just slip one of the oval, scarcely noticeable plasters on a blister or high-pressure spot. Use the large blister plaster for heels or small for toes and other areas. Be sure to apply the palster to dry skin, and press down firmly to make sure the plaster stays in place.

The plaster will stay in place for several days; remove it when it starts to peel off by itself.

… buy shoes to fit your bigger foot (feet normally differ in size). Buy shoes later in the day when feet are likely to be expanded to their maximum size.

… watch out for seams or materials that might rub, be too hard or uncomfortable.

… change shoes as often as you can. This will relieve pressure points that exude continuous pressure and therefore might lead to blisters.

... consider using insoles. Ask a doctor’s advice if properly fitting shoes for your feet don’t seem to be available.

…remember to protect “Hot spots” on your feet that are prone to blister development before you even leave the house. Applying Elastoplast Small Blister Plaster is a perfect preventive measure against friction, sore spots and blisters.

… make sure to take Elastoplast Large Blister Plaster with you when setting out on longer walks or runs, or going out for a night of dancing. It comes in a convenient pocket pack ready to help an existing blister heal and ease the pain.

...keep wearing the same shoes every day.

...forget to break in new shoes before you take them on a grand shopping tour or sightseeing trip.

...expect that footwear which is too tight will stretch with wear.

... forget to give your socks some thought: Socks that don’t fit snugly can cramp the toes as much as poorly-fitted shoes.

... leave your shoes prone to humidity: Humidity and leather are not a good mix. Keep your feet as dry as possible, as wet shoes, boots and socks will cause blisters far quicker than dry ones. Also, you can prevent moisture from sweating with an anti-perspirant.
