I know the feeling... I couldn't put on my shoes the next day (had to wear tRicky's shoes!) and even slipping on my uuber comfy ballet flats today at work is painful. Fully enclosed shoes must feel horrible!!

yes well I think I may have to pin prick these just to get rid of them faster.

Does that work? I'm scared to!

Yeah, it does. Drain them, but keep the outer skin intact until they dry out.

okay - I may give that a go tonight.

its better if they heal normally, but my general rule of thumb - if they are giving you issues after more than pin prick the base on them, drain them, apply antispectic, sometimes bandage depending on location/size.. leave to dry. generally youll have relief overnight from them, but they take a bit longer to heal fully.

Anti-sceptic? I think I had some of that on the way to #70.

Haha. You dished out plenty of that.

Anti-spec-tic sounds more like one of your apps.

I hope your heal blisters come to heel.

Ta - didn't drain them but I'm debating it still. They aren't sore but there just big lumps there now!

Their their.

That's not fare tRicky.

If they're still intact just leave them to reabsorb, eventually you'll the skin'll come off when some layers of skin have naturally worn(?) away.

At Expedition Africa the medics put something on everyone's blisters to dry them out after they'd been drained. It was a little ouchy :o
