Help needed with a tough patient with distal blisters


Dear Colleagues:
I have a client that has been having problems with distal blisters
occurring on her distal end.  The blisters occur on either side of a
small 1/4″ invagination of her scar.  I have the patient on a TSB
socket using a tec simplicity liner with suction suspension.   I have
had her in an elevated vacuum socket also but the problem was still
present so I took her out of the vacuum.  I have verified multiple
times that I have total contact with no voids to pull blisters.   Does
anyone have any thoughts as too what could be causing the blisters?  I
am assuming it is due to the invagination but if anyone has any other
thoughts I would gladly take them.  Also any ideas on ways to prevent
the blisters from occuring. 
Thank you for your time
Mike Magee CPO
