Also known as athlete's foot, this fungal infection thrives in warm, moist environments such as sweaty shoes and shower floors. Consistently high blood sugars, as in poorly controlled diabetes, may cause the eruption of blisters on the feet and toes.
Blisters may be caused by disease conditions, injuries or contact dermatitis such as poison ivy.
Symptoms include odor, redness, itching and blisters, most often between the toes and on the bottoms of the feet. If blisters on the foot are painful and interfere with walking, they may be punctured and drained, using sterile technique.


First aid for second degree burns includes soaking the affected part in cool water for at least 15 minutes, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. Though large, they are painless and self-limiting, healing without treatment in about three weeks, according to the American Diabetes Association. Remedies that dry the skin and creams that inhibit the growth of fungal organisms are most effective when coupled with ventilation and careful foot hygiene. Walking long distances without shoes may cause the bottoms of the feet to become blistered from wear, rough surfaces or extreme temperatures.
To prevent reinfection, disinfect showers at home and avoid going barefoot in wet public areas.


The rash and other symptoms clear up without treatment in seven to 10 days, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
