Blisters

Blisters are fluid-filled bumps that look like a bubble on the skin usually occurs on the feet and hands due to friction or pressure. Wearing shoes that doesn’t fit well causes blisters on the feet. Blisters on the hands are often due to heavy manual work. Other types of injuries to the skin that may cause a blister include burns, cold injuries. Infection like chicken-pox, shingles, and cold sores can cause blisters.

  • Aloe Vera: Apply the gel from a fresh cut aloe leaf directly to the affected area.
  • Tea tree oil: Apply a thin layer of tea tree ointment (containing 5 to 10% tea tree oil) to the affected area and cover the area with a clean bandage.
