A blister on the foot, can affect the ability to run and walk. Have you ever walked all day, feeling as though a blister is developing, becoming more and more irritated? Before experiencing immense itching and burning, apply a little piece of duct tape to reduce friction.

If a blister has already developed, the glue on duct tape could be painful. To reduce rubbing without any future pain, place a small piece of paper on the duct tape in order to cover the blister. That way, the sticky area of the duct tape will attach to the skin, not the blister.
