Paper Surgical Tape and Blisters

Long distance runners and hikers have a variety of ways to deal with blisters, but a new study out of Stanford suggests that the best method might be cheap paper surgical tape.

The study, published in Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine, found that paper tape reduced blisters on marathon runners by 40 percent. The study followed 128 ultramarathoners along a 155 mile, six stage ultramarathon in 2014. Researchers randomly selected a random foot on each runner, then taped over blister-prone areas. At the end, 98 of the 128 runners didn’t develop blisters under the tape. 81 of those 128 did get blisters in untaped areas.
