Product Review - Blisters? Try These Products

Blisters can ruin a great workout. They also linger for days afterwards & are painful. Check out these products to help reduce their occurrence.

These are several products on the market. These are the ones that I use & have found to be helpful!

Band-Aid Advance Healing Blisters For Fingers & Toes


  1. The only preventative I've used (and liked) was duct tape. Band-aids never seem to stay and I haven't used lubricants yet.

    I do have to ask though, have you ever used glue?, moreso for already formed blisters. Since I read about it I haven't had a blister to try it on (but I'm debating giving myself one after my Half Iron just to test it out. haha If you have, let me know by email ([email protected])

  2. I used my son's Scooby Doo bandaid today. Does that count? ;)

  3. @Kurt I haven't tried a glue. Usually using the above products with a moisture wicking sock does the trick. :)

    @Stephanie Most definitely that counts! :)

  4. I have a terrible issue with blisters and I have for over 10 years of running! The only thing I have not tried is Duct Tape as @Kurt mentioned above. Funny he mentioned it, because I'm reading a book about a guy that runs in Africa and that is what he uses (Duct Tape). I haven't tried glue either, but would like more information about that one : ) Great post guys!

  5. @Aimeespencer Hope that you find something that will reduce the blisters. Too funny about the guy in the book! Thanks for your comment!

  6. I have an awful blister on the arch of my foot right now. I've tried the band-aids and the blist-o-bans but it just keeps getting worse! It's now about the size of a quarter. Maybe I'll try duck tape....or just let it heal for a week but not running for a week stresses me out. Any advice anyone has would be very much appreciated!

  7. @Nina My advice is to use the above mentioned products. Hope it helps!


Thanks for your comments! I appreciate your time & look forward to hearing from you!
