Hey guys!

I'm currently vacationing in Japan! It's my second time here and I love it to pieces. Anyway, I decided to wear my heels around town and I developed two blisters on my toes because my shoes kinda cut into them. :(

I put bandaids on them when I have shoes on, but when I'm not walking, I take them off so they can dry. I don't want to put anything on them and hope they'll heal properly.

And since I'm a somewhat but not really new diabetic, I'm sort of freakin out because it might get infected and perhaps worse. :(

What do you guys do?

Hello there! Band-aid makes a bandage designed just around blisters. They are inexpensive and works quiet nicely. Being diabetic, if you do get an open wound, you should make sure you keep it dry, clean, and clear of infection. The smallest wound could place you at risk of more serious infections. Best of wishes and enjoy the rest of your vacation.

Man, I wish I can find those out here. XD

So far, they're going down, which is great! But for now, I'll keep taking off the bandaids so it can breathe at night.

Thanks for helping!
