    I get a bad blister on the back of my heal /: I even double sock.

    It hurts when I lunge when my opponent drop shots it or if they lift it when I move back. Can anyone help? This occurs to my left foot strangely
    Not my right but I just received rkep socks and they seem really thick like 3x a thickness hopefully that will work.

    Put a bandaid on it so that it won't rub against your shoe. Rkep socks are the best! :)

    My answer was obvious no kidding lol. I meant to say, change your shoes or put cotton on part of the shoe where ur heel/ankle is rubbing against

    These kind of bandaids work, but be aware though. The skin tends to come off with the band aid when you take it off.

    In any case, my recommendation is that you use maybe two bandaids and then you some sort of coach tape to keep the band aid there. The coach tape will also act as extra layers of skin. I've had this type of problem several times and it is not unusual when you buy new shoes.
    I've posted this in another thread as well, but when you buy new shoes, do not use them for a longer period of time. Use them for maybe 20-30 minutes and then switch back to your old shoes. This way you can break into the new shoes comfortably. You can also try to prevent blisters by putting band aid and taping on the heel before you start using your new shoes.

    Yeah I will use two bandaids next session. The shoes aren't that new I bought it a couple months ago I believe. But thank you so much! :)

    Band aids normally don't work too well in heavy friction areas combined with sweat. New skin works better. Its a liquid bandage you paint or spray on and it forms a hardened layer which prevents anymore friction on the area. Manning up works really well too:p

    It should not really be very difficult to go into a decent size pharmacy and ask for a deressing that would cover the blister. Make the dressing bigger that the area of the blister in case the dressing moves.

    I have a thing against Band-aids :(

    A few weeks ago, I developed a blister on the inside of my (left foot's) little toe.
    When it announced itself through pain, I slapped a Band-aid on it and went into battle.

    Oh yeah, the Band-aid did its job and protected the blistered part of my little toe.
    But chafing by the edge of the Band-aid ended up causing a new blister on the ring toe!

    Now I have two blisters, both painful, and rubbing against each other whenever I play!

    When you put on and remove your shoes, do you always have it untied first when you slip in and out? If not, then it's possible that you may have caused a part of the shoe heel riser to bend inwards, thus causing the blister.

    Ok, anyways make sure that the heel riser is not bent inwards. That may be the solution to your problem.

    Come on guys, this is a blister! Be a man and deal with it, no need to do anything. This just happens from time to time if you play seriously. Not worth to be mentoned...
