Psoriasis, eczema and fungal infections like "athlete's foot" are the most common conditions that produce blisters on feet.
There is a type of psoriasis called pustular psoriasis, which manifests with dry, yellowish brown blisters, more properly called pustules, on the soles of the feet or palms of the hands. Blisters are the number one foot ailment in Hiking and they can turn the greatest hike into the most painful one. Moisture: moist or wet feet from sweat or water are more susceptible to Blisters as moisture softens your skin. If the Blisters are at the surface and filled with fluid, you should take a sterilized needle and pierce the skin blisters.
If the Blisters on Foot are buried deep in your skin and does not hold a lot of liquid then do not try to puncture them. I learned a while back in the US ARMY- To avoid blisters put on a pair of nylon socks (yes guys the kind the women use).
Don't lance a blister until you're home, if at all possible, to prevent infection from developing at the blister site. Blisters are one of the common skin problems that mostly everyone will experience at least once in their life time.

Blisters are mainly composed of blood serum without the blood clotting agents and the red blood cells.
Water blister appears on the skin as a water pocket over the skin, which can occur as clusters of blisters or single blister.
Some of the common causes of water blisters include skin infections, skin friction against some hard things, chicken pox, Herpes virus infection, electrical burns on the skin, sun burn, skin exposure to heat rays, hot water burns, steam burns, poisons, etc.
If you want to treat water blisters, fist remove any clothing that covers the water blisters, as the clothing can further irritate the blisters. While treating blisters, take care that you do not experience one or more of the following mentioned symptoms like swelling, red streaks, pussy drain, pain, swollen nodes, skin rash, fever, skin heat, etc. These blisters make it very difficult to walk and go about daily activities, and they are often itchy.
Blisters can be avoided by proper Foot Training, having the correct Hiking Boots and Hiking Socks, and by early detection of possible problems. The heat responsible for causing Blisters is mostly caused by the friction between your skin and the inner of your boot. Preserve skin integrity using a molefoam "donut" equal to the height of the blister swelling, and cover that donut with moleskin, using a little square of nonadhesive gauze over the donut hole to prevent the moleskin from tearing off the blister's protective skin cover.

Before touching the blisters, wash your hands with warm water and disinfectant soap in order to avoid any infection while touching the blisters. The blistered area can be cleaned using the soap cloth and then puncture the blister using the sterile needle dipped in alcohol.
In this section, know the causes of Blisters and how to prevent Blisters, and how to treat them. The fluid inside is reducing friction at the blister site, and the skin covering it is keeping bacteria out. Then push the fluid inside the blister gently towards the puncture until all the liquid has been squeezed out of the puncture.
If you have recurring fungal infections of the feet, such as athlete's foot, it means your skin is too friendly a soil for these organisms to thrive. These water blisters can be formed almost anywhere in hands, legs, or in any parts of the body.
