Blisters in Capoeira

BLISTERS: So common and so painful

Written by Instrutor Bruxa

blisters

Difficulty to recover: Low
Time Required: Depends on the severity of the injury

A FEW HINTS:
• A small, unbroken blister [less than 1 in. across] will usually heal on its own.
• Do not try to break the blister. Just leave it alone.
• Leave the blister uncovered unless something rubs against it. If you do cover it:
• Apply a loose bandage. Secure the bandage so the tape does not touch the blister.
• If the blister is in an area where pressure is applied, such as on the bottom of your foot, protect it with a doughnut-shaped moleskin pad or you as for Second Skins from the chemist. If possible, leave the area over the blister open
• Do not remove the flap of skin covering the blister unless it tears or gets dirty or pus forms under it
