Have you ever worn a pair of small shoes or too big or just unsuitable for your feet? You put your hand on a hot tray? Did you work with the dumbbell more than usual? Then it is very possible that you have suffered from blisters. We tell you what you need to do to help them heal as quickly as possible, and which are the best natural treatments for blisters!
Aloe vera – is a natural anti-inflammatory, soothes redness and inflammation, moisturizes the skin and speeds up healing, especially if the blisters break.
Apple vinegar – is antibacterial and can prevent infection. Dilute it with water (a part of vinegar to 2 parts of water) and apply it to the affected area. Apple vinegar is especially recommended for blisters caused by sunburnt.
Green tea – it’s anti-inflammatory. Apply cold green tea bags on the affected area.
Tea tree oil – it is antibacterial and astringent and can help blisters to dry out. Dilute a part of tea tree oil into 3 parts of olive oil and apply it first on a small area to be sure it won’t irritate the skin.
Castor oil – soothes itching, speeds healing and keeps your skin moist. Apply it as such or in combination with another oil (more fluid).
Chamomile tea – Chamomile tea is antibacterial, prevents infections and soothes pain. Prepare a very concentrated chamomile tea, pour it in a bowl and soften the affected area. The tea shouldn’t be hot! For other areas of the body, you can use chamomile tea as compresses.
Vitamin E – prevents scar formation and speeds healing. Break a vitamin E capsule, put the contents in a spoon of olive oil and apply the mixture to the affected area.
Turmeric – is antiseptic, prevents infections, soothes pain and reduces inflammation. Mix 1 teaspoon of turmeric with a little water until you get a paste. Apply it over the blister, and let it act for 10-15 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Repeat 2-3 times a day.
