    Default Long lasting blister?

    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.

    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!

    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.
