    Ok, this doesnt sound much of an injury but:

    I played badminton last friday and got a pretty big blister, i still have blister today and its been a week, is it natural for a blister to last this long.

    p.s, i got a blister before in the same spot but it healed in like 3-4 days

    Depends on what you're doing. In order for a blister to heal it needs to stay dry and undisturbed.

    Put a medicated 'blister pad' on it.

    How I understand it, you get blisters if there is too much friction and moisture.
    That being said, I can suggest from cheapest to most expensive:

    1) Tighten your shoes tighter

    2) Buy thicker socks
    2) Put anti-moisture powder on your feet before playing

    3) Buy better shoes
    3) Buy shoes with closer to your size.

    If a shoe is too big, your feet moves around more causing friction.

    Hope this helps. :D

    gripping too hard would be the primary cause. put a band aid on it to prevent friction when playing and take it off when you're not playing.

    FAIL! :p

    1) Gripping too hard
    2) Incorrect technique
    3) Moist hands
    4) Actual grip size is too small

    I got a blister on my thumb once because the grip I was using was so worn out it rubbed my finger almost like sand paper

    while u wait to heal, think through your gripping and stroke. If u can't change it, maybe change the overgrip to those thick foamy type.
