    I use surgical sprit on my feet, applying it liberally with cotton wool, approx twice a week.

    Whether it does anything to the skin to prevent blisters, i'm not 100% sure, but it certainly cleans out any little cuts etc, and i practically never suffer with blisters unless breaking in the odd new pair of trainers, or if i get a stone lodged in my shoe mid-race.

    She knows a bit about blisters.
    Short walk today, with a Compeed plaster on my heel, but not Walshes (I chose a route where I could just about step around the worst of the mud). Everything felt fine.

    A run that was somewhat longer than intended (see my post on the Today's Training thread), wearing Walshes; so not very sensible in the circumstances. Some soreness under the Compeed plaster (which I haven't removed), but it would have been a lot worse without the plaster. So thank you for the advice, Mike T.

    Glad it helped. Compeed is good stuff, but not for prevention nor intact nor "popped" blisters - it is only for de-roofed blisters, or other superficial injuries when there is no skin to be pulled off when it is removed. I have used it with success on a palm injury after a fall.
