I heard about these blister plasters just before I set off to do a 12 mile walk in New York. I bought a pack and packed them, smugly. As it turned out, I didn’t need them, but I was glad to have them and now I’ll make sure I take them on any night out where I’m wearing heels or less than comfortable shoes, like, you know, a wedding!
Apparently they provide “immediate pain and pressure relief, cushioning protection and help create the ideal healing conditions for blisters.” Get the Scholl plasters from Boots in the UK. Or if you’re in the US, try an anti blister and chafing stick (“prevention is better than cure!”) from Drugstore.com.
