Why do I get water blisters?


Answer by  Aubs (1089)

The area in which the blister is located has been rubbed raw. Your body provides sterile fluid (the "water" inside the blister) to help stave off infection. It is best to leave these alone and not try to pop them, as the fluid helps protect the area from further trauma.

Water blisters are usually caused from repeated friction. Some viruses can cause water blisters. Chicken pox and shingles are two examples. Most of the time water blisters are caused from non-fitting shoes, perhaps a tennis racquet, constant use of a hammer or another type of tool.

Pressure or constant friction on any area of the body can cause water blisters. These form to protect your skin from a break in the healthy skin tissue. I suppose it is also a natural defense mechanism of the body, to warn you of inappropriate use of affected area.

Water blisters are causes by heat or friction. This damage the layers of the skin, which causes the upper layer to separated from the layers underneath it. This causes a gap between the layers and fills up with serum, The serum pushes the top layer of the skin and bulges out which causes a water blister.

Water blisters are caused by friction against skin. When weak skin on your hands or feet repeatedly rub against a surface, the skin comes loose, but is not removed. Water from the body then fills the space under the skin.

A water blister is one that has filled with body fluid. It can easily reduced to what amounts to a layer of skin over the tender area below it. By using a sterile needle you can drain the water at the base of the blister. Cover the blister for a day or two until it simply peels off.
