@sozobe,
That's okay, soz. At least you didn't bring up the vacation homes or the Lear jet.

What work for us was spray on skin. It's in a little aerosol (from the chemist) and stopped the rubbing. For a burst blister the routine was:
Betadine (wait for it to dry)
Spray on skin (wait for it to dry)
Adhesive bandage (just enough to cover the blister and pad it from the point it was rubbing)

Burst blisters actually healed while we were walking 20km+ a day.

@msolga,
I haven't been walking to work.

: (


I am letting one biggie heal itself under the skin, and bandaged the other with the special blister stuff.

It's not hurting now...but they'll be tested tomorrow when I walk into the city.

@sozobe,
So you can not have the attitude to people without the money ? You can not be just as ignorant without the large grounds surrounding the mansion ? I suppose you cant be a racist without a KKK outfit.

@dlowan,
Slowly, carefully does it, Deb.
Don't overdo it tomorrow, will you?
How far is the walk from home to work?

@dlowan,
Just possibly, walking on it is not the best therapy.

@dlowan,
I should mention I'm talking about blisters between and on top of toes, and on heels, not on souls. The plastic skin was also great if you felt a hot spot and got to it before it blistered. You on the other hand deb have third degree blisters - take it easy, and keep them dry and aerated.

Crocs are dead ugly but I hiked all through Thailand in a bright orange pair, not a blister to be seen. However, they are a dangerous choice when they or your feet get wet.

Not all are fugly ... the bright orange might be. Mine are sand colored, perfect for the desert.

There's a reason these are the footwear choice of many nurses who are on their feet all day. They are damn comfortable, and offer very good support through the insole.

Crocs are awesome on hard flat surfaces but have terrible ankle support. When crocs get wet your feet slide around inside because they don't fit properly. I think guy are used to walking around with great big snowshoes attached to their legs. Call it vanity, I still have problems looking down and seeing footballs. For that reason, they are fugly.. Wink

@dlowan,
In what manner did Ionus behave, Dlowan, that you find so egregious; was it his expression of the truth?

Might you have Setanta on ignore for he's certainly in the running for vile and obstreperous?

There's something awfully suspicious about these folks who pretend ignore but lo and behold, the ignored are suddenly and miraculously revealed.

@Ceili,
My feet need more support and cushioning than crocs could give for serious walking...but I AM wearing a pair if crocs at work lately...they look like ordinary black leather strappy shoes to the eye.
