Surely at some time in your life you will have suffered the occasional abrasion in any area of your feet as a result of the friction of the footwear on the skin. In some areas of the foot the skin is very thin, especially the back of the heel. Chafing can appear when we are wearing shoes, and sometimes as a result of sweat or swollen feet, at the end of the day or in summer.
Therefore, it is always useful to follow some appropriate tips that will help us when it comes to avoiding annoying chafing caused by the use of new or little recommended shoes from appearing. Among these basic tips, it is essential that the shoe size is correct and, when choosing footwear, make sure that it is as comfortable and soft as possible, that both the sides and the back of the shoe are not hard and look footwear that is in which both parties are flexible.
In case you have chosen a shoe that you liked a lot but that bothers you, you can apply a little moisturizer that you will smear on the back and on the sides of the shoe; this will make that area of the shoe soften. Another solution may be when it comes to closed shoes to resort to pinkies (short socks below the ankle), or in ankle socks or knee-high.

Natural Tips to Relieve Shoe Scuff Discomfort
A home remedy that comes in handy is to prepare an infusion of chamomile to wash the feet. Chamomile has anti-inflammatory and disinfectant properties.
Prepare an infusion with chamomile by following these steps:
- A liter of water.
- 4 tablespoons of chamomile plant.
We put the water to boil in a heater. Once it boils, we keep the boil for about 3 minutes. We cover the infusion and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Strain the infusion and let it cool. Once it is cold we put the infusion in a basin or basin where our feet fit well.
We introduce the feet in the chamomile infusion and let the feet soak for about 8 minutes. We remove the feet and dry gently with a towel.
Next we will make the home remedy with eggshell to protect the blister. The film that the eggshell has inside is very useful to protect the chafing and to help improve it.
How to prepare the egg home remedy for shoe chafing:
We will need:
- From an egg, its shell.
- A little strip.
We take the egg and we break it, we extract everything from its interior. Carefully we are removing the white film that is inside the shell. Once we have obtained the film, we put it on the blister and hold it with a plaster. Then you can put on any shoe again without abrasion or pain preventing you.
While you have the chamomile and you go to wash your feet, it would be advisable to save a little chamomile infusion and impregnate a cotton or gauze in chamomile and apply it on the chamomile with care.
