Initiation Rite?

I have my first athletic injury since high school - a blister on my (would be) bunion. Stupid cotton socks & stupid puddle.

Am I part of the club?

Check out Herrington's catalog- they have special socks that are supposed to eliminate blisters etc. Plus they have a lot of neat stuff!

Check out Wright socks. They work well for me.

hey i agree with the wright socks. i love em'. to take care of the doosy you have now. you should try the Bandaid brand blister bandaid. they are really weird, will stick for days (you just leave it there like a second skin) and it cures the blister right up. try not to pop it (i can't stand blisters and tend to poke them till they leak :-)

That's weird because I read online that you're supposed to wash it & poke it with a sterilized needle & push all the fluid out, but leave all the top skin in place to protect the blister. Then put a bandaid on it with neosporin. So, I wasn't supposed to poke it? Well, my foot is going to fall off, I can feel it.

So yea you can pop it and drain it then with a small syringe inject some benzoine ( I think that is how you spell it) makeing sure you use the same hole you drained it from. Warning: The shit stings like a BITCH! But it will dry that sucker up so fast you'll forget you ever had it! LOL Then just put some mole skin on it and it will stay on there for like 5 days that way nothing will rub on it and it can heal without irritation. It's what we do in the field.
