<P> Okay girls, so ofcourse with beauty of dancing en pointe comes the time when you take your shoes off and realize you have blisters. My question is what do you do to take care of your feet? I have class on Tues night, but my blister hurts when i wear pointe shoes. What things can I do to help it heal, and what should I avoid? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Whatever you do, don't pop it. If you pop it, then it will take longer to heal and also it can get infected.

You should keep it as clean and dry as possible. Wrap it well in a bandaid - there are now some bandaids on the market that pro-actively help healing.<P>Here is a thread we had - in case you didn't see it:<P><BR><A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum19/HTML/000008.html" TARGET=_blank><B>TOOLS OF THE TRADE - THE FEET</B></A><BR>
