THE HANSAPLAST SOS PACK. BLISTER TREATMENT AND PAIN RELIEF ON THE RUN.
But now, wherever you are, wherever and whenever they develop, they won’t stop you in your tracks. With a Hansaplast SOS Pack and a couple of minutes, you can get back on your feet, back on the road and back into your stride, pain-free and more determined than ever.
Why do we get running blisters?
That’s because we move differently when we’re running. We move further, we move faster and we also land harder, too. As a result, our feet get hot, sweaty and swollen, and that can just make things worse. Throw in a new, stiff pair of shoes to the mix or an old, worn-out pair that don’t fit as well as they did, and blisters are going to form.
But although blisters occur naturally they can – as we all know – be painful enough to dampen out spirits and kill our motivation. They’re liable to dent our determination, affect our performance and take all the fun out of running.
Where do we get them?
The short answer? Pretty much anywhere. The longer answer? Well, although your skin gets used to friction and pressure over time, running faster or further than normal or over different terrain can provoke blisters in new places: Blisters on heels, blisters on the arch or ball of your foot, blisters under toes, on toes – even blisters between toes.
What’s in the Hansaplast SOS Pack?
2 small blister plasters
Those little blisters on, under or between your toes can hurt in a big way. That’s when you need something that’s going to relieve the pain without getting in the way, making things worse or restricting your movement.
2 large blister plasters
For bigger blisters like those on your heel or the ball of your foot, you’ll need a bigger plaster to make sure it’s properly covered and protected.
1 extra large blister plaster
Sometimes you can experience friction or pressure over an even bigger area like the arch of your foot – or get so into your running that you don’t notice a big blister getting even bigger. That’s when the new, extra large blister plaster comes to the rescue.
1 Pressure Stop plaster
For those awkward places where it’s already a tight fit like on the top or the ball of your foot, then a super-slim Pressure Stop plaster can be cut to the precise size required and will help stop a blister forming. We all know our hot-spots - where blisters always form.
How do they work?
The really clever bit, though, is the Hydrocolloid Active Gel Cushion that absorbs the fluid your body produces and uses it to form its own spongy layer that’s much more resilient to friction and pressure than skin alone.
Hansaplast Blister Plasters don’t just relieve the pain in its tracks and get you to the finish line in comfort, they actually help you heal faster, by encouraging new cell growth and migration.
Once applied, they’re specially designed to hold fast for at least 48h so you can stop worrying and get moving again. Just peel off the backing, smooth the plaster over clean, disinfected and dry skin and then forget about it: a Hansaplast plaster will stay in place whether it is out on the road or in the shower, but it needs to be removed when it starts to peel off by itself.
