Try Blister Block bandaids, maybe?  Those things are like armor.  I’ve worn them for days and showered and everything and they don’t come off.

Maybe try to create a blister pad – a thick pad, with a hole in the center (or thin layer) for the blister/thin skin.  This won’t be comfy but it will let you walk on it.  Leave open to the air today to try to build up the protection.

I had some really bad cuts on my elbow and knee (fell off my bike) and I used these. They were amazing. I don’t know how well it would work for the heel since they might be a bit big. The above suggestion for the blister block bandaids is a good one, I think they’re similar to these fast healing ones.

@KatNYC2011: You’re welcome! Clearly, I would rather do anything than work today! haha

You should get some moleskin. It comes in a roll you can cut to size,.

 You need to cut a piece larger than the blister then cut a hole in it for the blistered area. You may need to use several layers.

You then put an antibiotic ointment on the open blister area and cover that part with a normal dressing.

Alternatively you could try a heel cup- they are sold for people with plantar fasciitis. Some models have a removeable insert that leaves an open area for heel spurs. This would provide the same cushioning.

I was just going to suggest the moleskin! Great stuff. Also you might want to pick up some Dr. Scholl’s For Her high heel inserts. Darling Husband got me some and they’re fantastic. I can’t leave any type of blister or scab well enough alone either…

Another option I used for really bad blisters is 2nd Skin (traditionally for burns). It’s a square piece of gel that you put on the open wound and tape for security (you’ll have to anchor the tape properly for it to stay). It creates a friction buffer between the ground and the raw skin, so you can barely feel the blister.

ETA: pretty much exactly what Ms. Martian was talking about.
