Is it correct and natural to say a shoe chafed me a blister when I want to say that a shoe gave me a blister? For example:

My new shoes chafed me blisters.

If it is not natural, how would you say it?

0

a shoe gave me a blister

or

a shoe chafed me

or

a shoe chafed me until I blistered

or

a shoe chafed me until a blister rose

or

a shoe chafed me raw

but something can't chafe you a noun.

    Chafe is not one of the (smallish) group of bitransitive verbs.
