Formspring question from before

Sorry that got cut off last time.
I recently got some very gnarly blisters from walking too long in old boots. I have gotten rid of the blisters but the area where they were is still missing a layer of skin and it’s healing back very very very slowly. I wonder if you have any advice how I can speed up the healing. Thanx a ton,

P.S. I check your blog daily. It’s the first site I go to when I need to rub one out.

First off, thanks for the daily visits.  I love making you guys hard.  😉  

I’m not much of a medical expert, though, so I don’t know if I can offer any real advice, unfortunately.  Although I have had my share of blisters (a few quite large, almost the size of a quarter), and it is frustrating to have a giant “hole” of skin.  It did seem to take a while to heal.  I can say that I waited a bit until that skin underneath the blister toughened a bit, and then I used a pumice stone to sort of help smooth out the skin.  To be honest, though, I’m not even sure that really did all that much.

If anyone does have any ideas or tips, please share them.  I’d be curious to know, too.

I do love answering questions about nearly anything, so please ask!
