Blisters

Euugghh I have big blisters on my shins :crying:

I'm going out tonight.. is there anything I can put on them to get rid of them? Should I pop them or leave them alone? Will it hurt??

    I usually pop mine..but I'm grosse like that.

    Not sure if there's any specific kind of cream for them, although I've heard stuff like pile cream reduces these things, along with reducing big baggy eyes!

    how did you get blisters on your shins?
    if you pop them won't they be open wounds? maybe not the best thing for a night out.

    Popping them will make them heal quicker, but it will leave an open wound, and it does hurt a bit. Best to soak them for a bit in warm water to soften the skin if you're going the pop them. Plasters are your best option I think, but if you're wearing a skirt or something they'll show. How did you manage to get blisters on your shins?!

    Hmm maybe I'm using the wrong word :lol:

    They were caused by new sandals and are on the back of my ankles. I thought they were my shins :lol:

    I was wondering how the hell you got them on the front of your legs!

    Personally I'd pop them (niiiice), and plaster them up.

    I've not heard of any. I normally leave mine, but last time I did that I went out wearing boots, came home and I have loads of dead skin on the back of my heel. :yuck:

    I think its Dr. Scholls who make something called moleskin or second skin... Just a thin padded piece of something to go over blisters and they stick much better and are more comfortable than bandaids, if you happen to buy anything.
