Blister prevention is important in all sports, particulalry running and football, where the footwear and activities can lead to blisters on the feet. Blisters are common in running and other sports. Blisters form due to friction against the skin on the feet, most often at the ball of the foot and the heel regions. Blister prevention is always preferable to blister treatment.
