The most annoying injury I had a blood blister nothing too serious, but foolishly I ran on it last night in the new orthotics.

This uncovered the blister ie burst it the skin flapping some covered it blister plaster and padding. But do you air it after resting or keep it covered 24/7 till 'recovered'.

Supposedly yes... But they are expensive...I've got a huge one (blister that is!) and after compeed parted company with it at swimming pool it's doing fine on airing at night and a big plaster when wearing a shoe. To be honest I'm not how compeed could make a blister heel faster they do protect them from being aggravated by being rubbed again.

Got something to say?
