Horrible Blisters :/

So, being the stubborn stupid person that I am, I wore my brand-new tall boots to a show last weekend from 7am to 5pm. I figured this would be a good way to break them in... so. wrong. I basically have no skin left on my heels and they are killing me! Every time I take a step they hurt and crack. I have been putting Neosporin on them to try to help them heal, but is there anything else that I can do??? Thanks in advance!

Yes, take a rubber mallet or anything like that, and pound the back of the heels down where it's rubbing you. Pound the leather down from the inside of the boot, could be awkward but it smooths out & flatten the irritating areas. As for your blisters now, OUCH!!!! Sorry, they just gotta heal for you.

They work amazingly well, and significantly better than any of the other brands or generics I have tried. You stick them directly to the blister, even if they have opened (I know, I was skeptical too, but it doesn't hurt at all), and the pad stays on for about 3 days through everything you can throw at it - showering, working out, etc. They are seriously lifesavers.
