Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
Blisters on the foot can form from different causes.
It can develop from the friction or trauma.
Allergy, contact dermatitis or an infection can cause blisters.
Sweating, heat are predisposing factors.
Properly fitting shoes, regular change of socks, avoiding sweating are important factors.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
Please avoid popping as open blisters can get infected.
Avoid friction of foot.
You can apply neosporin cream which can help to prevent infection.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
