    Just leave them alone, and put plaster on them when you are wearing shoes. Try to wear sandals so that it does not come into contact with anything to make it worse.

      not too sure if pimple cream can help, coz pimple cream usually very drying. else you can try clpersonal's method.

        ouch! i hate blisters bubble...

        but the best solution is really to not do anything to it and wear comfy shoes for the next few days while waiting for it to dry up...

          Once i had a huge bubble blister on my feet and i went to see the doctor about it.
          Guess what.....the doctor prick my blister with a small needle, apply some antiseptic cream and paste a plaster over it.
          My blister wound dried up and was healed within 2 days after that.

          Bursting the blister to let the liquid comes out does help to let the wound dries up faster......but make sure to apply some antiseptic cream and cover up the wound to prevent germs from getting in.

          HTHs!

            Ya, you should break it a little and let the liquid ooze out. But do not cut away the blistered skin. This way it protects the red raw skin beneath and yet let the blister dries up. Remember to apply some antiseptic cream. i always do that and it helps.

            hope it heals soon

              A little OT -- I don't have blisters on my feet but my soles are starting to feel "hard", I think from standing around too much from teaching?

              The hard skin feels so rough to the touch and there's even a bit of peeling... how depressing. Any lotions/creams to recommend? I'm a bit wary of sloughing off the dead skin with a pumice stone after my pedicurist (if there's such a word!) told me a horror story about a woman who scrubbed and scrubbed until she had bloody, cracked and peeling soles! :puke:

                      I've this :x problem too. Resulted from walking ard too much in heels. Scrubbing (with pumice stone) works. But take care not too scrub too much or too hard.
                      That lady must be over zealous. *ouch*

                      And after that, do what Farah has suggested.

                        I suppose most brands should do fine. When I bought one sometime ago, I buy it according to packaging. The one that looks more clinical appeals more to me. Hehe

                        Perhaps also look out for the brand. Choose from the more reputable ones.

                          I was once told by a manicurist that wearing open toes shoes would result in more drying skin esp. around the soles. The best way to prevent from getting more "hard" skin around the soles is to start wearing a pair of close up shoes with very thin socks like 3x a week. It does help a little.

                              that's just callouses dear. sloughing away the dead skin with a pumice really works! i used to have lots of that after teaching, but regular sloughing cures most of it.

                              dont worry about horror stories - if you're doing it yourself, you definitely know your own body right? so there shouldnt be problems
