    Greetings to all badders! :D

    Need some advice/tips here.

    I've had 2 blisters both under my left foot, and they are approx. 2 weeks old. :(

    I know, you'll ask why didn't I treat it right after I got it? Well normally I just leave it and it'll break and heal.

    But apparently this time, it did not. I tried piercing it after a week or so, but no fluid comes out. (Only blood, because I pierce it too deep I guess)

    So now, though it still hurts but I kinda got used to it. (Yeah, I still play badminton frequently) Should I stop? And what should I do?

    I got this Blister Plaster from Walmart that says Prevent/Heal blisters.

    No idea how effective it is though, used it for a few days, but still the same.

    Any suggestions will truly be appreciated! Thanks!

    To avoid blisters in the near future, try the Thorlo socks.

    They are expensive but they work great!

    I used to get a lot of blisters when I played tennis and badminton a few years ago. It turns out that it was the specific shoe that I was wearing which was causing the problem. Maybe that can be a possible source (especially if they are too big)?
