    I wore invisible socks with my trainers today and ended up having to do a lot of walking. My shoes rubbed on the back of my foot and I didn't think much about it but just now I've looked at the back of my ankle/foot and there's a small blister. I'm so TEMPTED to pop it but I've heard that it makes it worse. What should I do, put a plaster over it?.

    don't do anything to it, it will heal by itself. blisters are caused by skin that is damaged by friction or heat, if you give it time then the skin under the blister will heal, the fluid inside the bubble will be absorbed into the healed skin and the blister will fall off due to being dry. if you think that it may be infected- green, yellow, red pus, then you should seek medical attention or if they are very painful or keep coming back.

    Heat up a pin with a lighter or something, then pop it. You will be fine as long as you heat up the pin and then clean it with antiseptic afterwards, I've done it myself when I had one on my finger from Hot glue.. it instantly felt better after I had popped it.

    popping it with a sterilised needle will relieve some of the pressure, so it won't hurt as bad. after popping it, soak your foot in warm water. then put a plaster over it.
