Blisters tend to break out on the area of skin where there are frequent rubbing. In response to this rubbing, a fluid filled layer called blister will be developed on the skin. Blisters are filled with a clear liquid called serum. Usually a blister will go away within a week and if it doesn't then you should consult a doctor to get a medication prescribed for the blisters.
Sometimes blisters can be caused due to illnesses and medications that you're taking so not all times will a blister be due to friction. The herpes blisters caused by HSV-1 are often referred to as cold sores or fever blisters. Most commonly, it is children between the ages of one and two years old who suffer the most frequent outbreaks, however, they can affect people of any age.

Tonsil stones and tongue blisters if found are diagnosed and assessed by physicians after going through the medical history of the sufferer, a thorough physical examination is done, bacteriological cultures tested, blood sample tested and then also checked using x-rays. When a single area of skin is repeatedly rubbed over extended period of time, a tear forms under the outer layer of skin (epidermis), causing fluid to leak through and become trapped between layers of skin.
In order to make sure that you are doing your best to prevent foot blisters, ensure that your running shoes fit properly. Buy shoes that are used only for your treadmill workout. They should be a ½ size bigger than your other shoes, and give plenty of room for your toes. Rinsing your mouth with a wash made from baking soda will prove soothing and increasing your intake of Vitamin C has been known to reduce the severity and longevity of the outbreak.
A blister is actually a separation of the epidermis from the dermis or a separation within the dermis itself. Many times friction blisters come and go. However, if left untreated they can cause an infection and increase your recovery time needed to heal.
It is better to leave blisters uncovered, but if something is rubbed against it, you can cover it with a loose, adhesive bandage or dressing until it heals. A large blister can be covered with a larger adhesive bandage with a porous, plastic-coated gauze pad.
