Moving On...


Pretty, eh?

The good news is that the blister has ripped open and is drying out. The bad news is that the blister has ripped open and exposed tender new flesh that seems ripe for more blistering.

We shall see.

Yesterday I managed 5 miles; it was questionable when I stopped, whether or not my feet would have help up for further distance. I'm not sure what to do for tomorrow's walk; I should trim the dead skin away, but I don't know if I should cover it then or see what happens and deal with it if it looks like there are going to be further issues.

I hate my feet, I really do...

Thump, I see a secondary margin in there, you have had more than one blister and they are in different stages of healing. I really think you ought to see a wound specialist. They can help you heal your foot and might be able to help you prevent another blister. There are some truly nifty dressings and treatments but you will not find them in the DIY aisle at Wally-world. Get that foot healed up properly so you can go on to make history and save the boobies! :)

Oh yeah...there was a blister under the blister. All the dead skin has been trimmed back now, and underneath looks really good. No signs on infection or bleeding or anything like that...just pink new skin, ripe for renewed blisters ;)

Picture please.

I still think you could get the best help with keeping the blisters away by going to a professional. There are advanced practice nurses who only do wounds. Does ST know someone in that area.
