Clean it with water. Then use a clean tissue paper to make it dry. Apply an elastic adhesive bandage which is large enough to cover the wound (in order to decrease further scraping). Repeat this procedure daily until the wound heals. It the wound gets wet at any time, you should also repeat the procedure.

行山時腳板底起了水泡, 穿了, 塊皮甩下甩下, 請問現場應如何處理, 1. 用消毒藥水消毒後將塊皮貼回傷口包W, 2. 還是乾脆剪走甩皮, 再消毒包W. 3. 回家後又應如何處理, 謝謝

If it was not very loose, don't cut it during hiking. That detached skin layer can still give you some protection against friction. If it was very loose (and not able to give your foot any more protection), simply cut it with a clean instrument. Wash the wound, then keep the wound dry and apply an adhesive bandage to it.

After going home, wash the wound again. Keep the wound clean and dry. Apply an adhesive bandage. Repeat the above procedure every day until the wound heals up.

Thank you Doctor, if the wound is as large as 80-90%of the heel, should I cut the detached skill, and also should I let the patient walk home in this occasion

If the wound is as large as 80-90% of the heel, then the area is considered to be big. The patient should feel painful. Try not to cut the superficial skin away during hiking. After cleaning and drying, apply protective bandage to the area. The patient should be able to walk slowly. He may consider cutting off the nearly detached skin after going home (but he must repeat the cleaning procedures).

Don't worry.
You do not get used to wearing the new shoes.
Let your feet heal up first.

At next hiking trip:
1) Check whether the foot-pads fit to the shape of your sole.
2) Wear a pair of thick socks.
3) You should feel a little bit loose after wearing the shoes (with socks on).
4) You should choose an easier route next visit (i.e. not too long, not too steep). Once you get used to wearing your shoes, you can increase the duration and difficulty in your future hiking trips.
