Blistop Stops Blisters From Sidelining Your Fitness Routine

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - November 4, 2010) -  Blisters are one of the most common fitness-related foot injuries according to podiatrists. Seemingly harmless, blisters can lead to the demise of any fitness regimen. But makers of the new blister prevention spray, Blistop, say you can easily bypass the threat of these painful nuisances in less time than it takes to lace up your shoes. 

"Whether you're an everyday athlete or a weekend warrior blisters don't discriminate," says John Swigert, vice president of Eulactol USA and makers of Blistop. "When a blister forms it can derail anyone's best intentions for getting back in shape or keeping up with a training routine."

When it comes to blisters, moisture and friction are the primary culprits. Moisture and heat create the perfect environment for the formation of blisters that are caused by friction from either the shoe or the sock rubbing against the skin. Poor-fitting shoes or foot abnormalities can intensify rubbing and start a blister.

Blistop works to protect the skin from friction with an invisible layer of film on the foot that is water-resistant. The product allows the skin to breathe while keeping the moisture away from the skin. Other blister products such as the solid, rub-on applicators made with vegetable or mineral oil are greasy and can cause slipping, which can lead to more foot problems.

"Don't let blisters stop or slow you down," says Swigert. "Blistop sprays on and then stays on. Prevention is the best strategy so if you can stop and spray your feet with Blistop before starting your activity, you may avoid the blister problem altogether."

Blistop was recently awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Approval, recognizing it as a valuable product considered beneficial to foot health. The compact spray is convenient and safe for daily use. It can be purchased in the foot care aisle at drug stores such as Walgreens or Rite-Aid and online at: (SRP: $6.99). For more tips on stopping blisters visit: or
