What is the best thing you can do when you have a blister?
just got a new pair of shoes and now I have a blister on the back of my ankle. Very annoying but what is the fastest way to heal this or best thing that I can do for it? I want to go jogging but it's probably going to rub off my runners now!! :(

Jeney M
Put sudo cream on the blister, wear a thick plaster over it and put on thick socks and you should be good to go.

Dr Frank
Blisters should ideally be left intact and never pierced, as the skin cover keeps the lesion sterile. To do this pad generously and wear footwear that allows you keep the dressing intact. Either abandon the shoes or at least take them back to the shop and have them stretched. Decent shoe shops still have the device needed to do this. If and when the blister does burst, keep it clean and put on an antiseptic cream such as Savlon and a sterile dressing.

Paula P
I like to pierce them with a clean needle then squeeze the fluid out. This prevents them bursting naturally and leaving a large area of unprotected skin. Then, put a plaster or dressing over it. The main thing is to prevent the whole thing being ripped off - that hurts and may get infected!

u can get a sponge pad to stick in the inside of the shoes to stop it hurting and stop more coming ask in a shop no quick way of healing just keep wearing mite get used to em

a thick bandaid (or two) some cream. and make sure to not wear shoes that rub that spot untill it is completely healed. i got baaddd blisters from some shoes so i would put a bandaid on untill the shoe smoothed out and stopped rubbing.
