Frequently Asked Questions (5)
1. Why do we get blisters?Usually, blisters will appear in areas where the skin is exposed to pressure and friction over a long period of time. This tends to happen during sports or when wearing new shoes the first few times. Pressure and friction on a part of the foot will cause the upper layer of the skin (the epidermis) to move back and forth over the layer underneath. A space appears between the two skin layers, and fluid seeps into it. This bubble of fluid is the blister.
2. What’s the best way to treat a large blister?If it has already formed, the area should be protected from further pressure and contamination. Hansaplast Blister Plaster XL works using Hydrocolloid Technology. This creates a moist healing environment absorbing the blister fluid and creating an optimal moist wound healing environment. It allows the wound to heal faster. At the same time, the Blister Plaster XL safely seals and protects the area against dirt and bacteria. When you’re experiencing pain from a particularly large blister, Hansaplast Blister Plaster XL gives instant pain relief by protecting the area from any further pressure. This is especially important for large blisters on soles of feet and blisters on the ball of your foot.
3. Should I pop the blister? And is there something I should do if it pops accidentally?It’s recommended that blisters shouldn’t be intentionally popped. They serve a purpose and are there to protect against additional infection. If your blister is already ruptured, the remaining skin layer should be left where it is. Whatever the situation, it is key that the wound is protected from external influences and contamination.
The affected area should be cleaned and dried carefully before putting on a blister plaster. If the blister is already open, we recommend giving the area an extra disinfection. Hansaplast Blister Plaster XL with Hydrocolloid Technology instantly relieves large blister pain from pressure and friction, while creating an optimal moist wound healing environment. It’s this that allows the wound to heal faster. The healing process is aided even further because your large blister is safely sealed and protected from dirt and bacteria.
4. Is it a good idea to use a healing cream underneath the Hansaplast Blister Plaster XL?No. Before you apply the Blister Plaster XL to your large blister, we don’t recommend using any products at all underneath it. The reason being that there’s a chance they may reduce the effectiveness and adhesive power of the Blister Plaster XL.
5. How do I know when it’s time to change the blister plaster?So that you don’t disturb the healing process of your big blister, and as long as there are no signs of infection, the plaster should be left in place for several days. It should only be changed when it peels off by itself. Hansaplast Blister Plaster XL with Hydrocolloid Technology creates an optimal moist wound healing environment for your large blister - so leave the plaster on until it starts to peel off by itself.
