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.

who said it was on my feet:P, sorry guys but i forgot to mention its on my index finger, maybe im gripping it too hard?

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.

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
