Ouch, blisters!! - April 25th 2010, 11:52 AM

So I was out and wearing heels last night, and because we ended up wandering around town for a little while looking for somewhere to go, my demon heels cut up my feet. (The dancing didn't help either, heh.) And now I have two blisters on each foot and they're pretty painful! I'm not planning to really walk anywhere today but I'll be gonig out tomorrow and want them to feel less painful by then.
Any tips for making them feel better?? (:

Go and get some blister pads/plasters if you can from a chemist. Some of them work really well. Also, do not try and pop the blisters.. If they pop themselves then theres not much you can do but don't go sticking needles in them or anything like that which some people might suggest. Oh, and wear flats/shoes that you've worn in and won't make the blisters worse tomorrow?

I agree, go to the chemist and see if you can find some special blister plasters. I had a terrible blister on the back of my foot whilst in the middle of town, I had to run into the nearest chemist and get some! They worked straight away, they're often completely clear too, which is helpful They heal the blister whilst protecting it, I was genuinely surprised at how well it worked!

I know everyone says "don't pop them!" but popping them does release the fluid which stops them getting bigger. If they break themselves, it becomes a lot more painful. You can buy a thing called packing, and you cut a hole in the middle of it so it goes over the blister but you can still see it. It will stop it rubbing on your shoes. I superglue my blisters til they heal, then remove the superglue with nail polish remover, not the most gentle or practical way but it does work, cause I train 3 nights a week, and blisters really hurt when I wear my boots.

Ouch.

That's really not a good idea to use glue and nail polish remover.

I agree....I wouldn't really feel comfortable putting that mixture on my skin...especially as I'm trying not to let the blisters get infected or anything..

I agree with visiting your local pharmacy and purchasing some blister pads, there are plenty available, so perhaps just ask your pharmacist what they think is best. Try to keep your blisters clean and, as has already been said, don't pop them. I wouldn't recommend putting any solutions on your blisters unless it's a specialist cream.

Take care.

Your skin is part of your immune system in fact it is your first line of defence. If you pop a blister you break the surface of the skin and allow infection to enter. The only time a blister should be lanced is if it is causing extreme pain or is already infected and this should be done by a registered nurse or doctor with a single use disposable lancet. They will then dress it so that infection cannot enter. A needle held in a flame is not a medical implement and contrary to popular belief it does not kill all germs doing this. For now I would wear shoes with no backs and cover them with melolin and duopore tape. Do not pop them yourself or put any glue on them though. Trust I know what I'm talking about here
