Blisters are annoying

I have a blister on the back right of my heel, its been there for three weeks now and is now about as big as a quarter and sticks out about a centimeter or so. The stupid thing wont pop or go away. Its too cold yet to switch over to sandals and trying to relive the pressure on the back of my heel just made it bigger. Anyone have any ideas on this? Its starting to make walking a pain.

Also, now down under three hundred pounds. Progress is starting to slow so I need to increase walking distance but the blister is getting in the way.

I really need to work on schoolwork too but cant seem to find the ambition.

Dude...awesome progress on the weight stuff.

And school can come and go. Graduates of med school, whether they make 'A's or 'C's, are still called 'Dr.'

Sterilize a needle, pierce the blister, drain the fluid, put a big band-aid on it, wear two pairs of socks.

Limp until healed :-)

Ok, because I was told not to mess with it and when it was ready it would pop on its own.

Generally good advice if it's not a load-bearing blister. The skin at the top of the blister is better protection for the injury than a band-aid.

I think, however, that that advice is as opposed to "pop it, cut the dead skin off, and bandage the wound". Leaving the dead skin in place is good. You don't need the fluid, though, because that just builds pressure & causes pain.

It popped last Tuesday, now I just have a square inch of dead skin.
