Anybody know of good creams/lotions/powder that are good in preventing/treating blisters? or any other info to stop blisters....only thing I know is to wear your shoes in before leaving for your trip.

Buy comfortable shoes,boots sandles before you go and work them in BEFORE you go!!! When wearing shoes and boots, wear socks this will prevent not only smelly feet but blisters as well. When you feet get sore, take a break, sit down enjoy a pint, pain in your feet is your bodies way of saying "i need a drink" Try to avoid getting your shoes/boots wet, more chance of getting blister with wet shoes, and you will have to worry about fungi now on top of the blister. If you folllow these tips, you should not have blisters to worry about. If your prone to getting blisters, go and see your dr. before you go and get a perscription cream, that will fix you up faster than anything you can buy off the counter.

EWWW! ugh thanx alot cd I'm in the middle of eating. great now i've lost my appetite. .yuck ..k that person is a dumbass. Those blisters are soooo huge that obviously you would have felt the beginnings of the blister. That person could have prevented them from getting that big...No activity in the world is worth the pain that those blisters will cause.
