    My mum is a rower and between the water and the rubber oar handles, she gets a lot of blisters on her hands and feet. For Christmas, I want to put together a blister kit for her, especially designed for just blisters.

    So far I'm thinking:
    Zinc oxide tape
    Hydrocolloid blister plasters
    Moleskin
    Benzoin tincture
    Iodine wipes
    Scalpel blades
    Alcohol wipes (For sterilising tools, not skin)
    Petroleum gauze
    Normal plasters

    Is there anything you think I'm missing? I'd really appreciate some feedback

    I think you have a good selection of blister care items. Take a look at USNERDOC's youtube videos on his blister care kit. He has some good ideas, too.
