I did a lot of walking over the weekend & developed a mid-sized water blister between the big & second toe.
Aside from draining it (although I have read of letting it alone &l allowing the body reabsorb it) and applying anti-biotic cream, what do you guys suggest for quick healing, and also protection while working out.
I'm in week 5 of Insanity, and as many of you know there is a lot of running/pounding on the feet. Any suggestions on how to tape this or prevent further rubbing/irritation until it heals?
Hey Katz, I experience these a lot on my longer runs and what I do is quick and effective whilst allowing me to continue training. This method has never given me any problems either!
I tend to let them develop until it's bothering me (when the blister looks fit to burst and is full of liquid), I 'pop' it with a sterilised needle, drain it making sure ALL of the liquid is out, if there's a loose flap of skin left I take that off then tape it up. That's it.
