Default Feet blisters!

Anyone have suggestions on healing blisters? New sneakers cause me to have 3 blisters (2 bled). They hurt really bad.

Advice is appreciated.

Hi Kitty - I do not know any quick remedies for healing blisters (I know how bad they hurt). But this is what I do.

I get a bowl or pan, (large enough to get your feet into) and fill it up with hot or warm water, and Epsom Salt. (Which can be bought fairly cheap at any drug store, or grocery store). Put the salt in the warm water to dissolve. Then put your feet in and let them soak for as long as you like. (I usually soak for about 15 - 20 minutes.) And it doesn't hurt.

Just keep doing this once a day until the blisters begin to heal.

I also apply Neosporin to the blisters that opened up, or bled, to help prevent infection, and to speed up the healing time.

I hope your feet are feeling better soon! Blisters are not fun!

From a column in Dear Abby:

There is an old Japanese proverb: "Fall seven times, get up eight." Who knows? The road to success may be just around the corner. Wouldn't you be dismayed to realize that it was right in front of you, and you had stopped before you reached it?
