  2. QUESTION:
    I recently got warts frozen on my my arms and hands, anyway to make them heal faster?
    Besides soaking them in Epsom salts.

    • ANSWER:
      There isn't a lot more you can do to make the blisters from the freezing heal faster. Make sure you keep them clean and watch for signs of infection - pus, red streaks, heat. You could try applying a little aloe vera gel which is both soothing and has healing properties.

  4. QUESTION:
    can a diabetic soak foot in epsom salts after popping a blood blister?
    I had a blood blister on the bottom of my foot & popped it,cleaned it with peroxide,& bandaged it.It relieved the pressure,but it is still sore.Can I soak my foot in epsom salt until I can see my Dr.?

    • ANSWER:
      I have borderline diabetes and would be perfectly happy doing this to help how it feels. The main thing is to make sure that you keep it clean and avoid infection. You've used peroxide, which is great. If I could stand the feeling I would douse it in alcohol after and before bandaging it lightly.
      But why not call up the Doctor and get advice over the phone? Most surgeries will do this if you've made an appointment but there's a while to go before you get to it.

  5. QUESTION:
    How can I prevent blisters on my feet when I play hours of basketball?
    I sometimes get blisters while playing very intense full court basketball games for 4 hours. I'm not sure if it is due to a small shoe because my shoe is definitely a little tight but not discomforting. Blisters are due to friction so I'm maybe thinking of wearing another sock or something?

    Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Soak your feet in a warm Epsom Salt bath after you play.

  6. QUESTION:
    How to help pain coming from ballet pointe?
    I am in a dance camp this summer and I have pointe at least once a day for 1 hour. Sometimes we have pointe twice a day depending on the day. My feet hurt really bad and I am try to figure out how I can help the pain to go away after? How to help my toes? I soak my feet in Epsom Salts with warm water every night after better it doesn't seem to help much. Is there other things I can do to help the pain? Thanks so much! :)

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry but Pointe Shoes will hurt, thats one of the disadvantages of being a dancer :(
      -get an electric back massage (with heat helps!) and put it on your feet where it hurts.
      -put cotton balls with medical tape over the blisters.
      -use a heating pad while not on pointe. (when you get home from dance.)
      -put medical tape around all 5 toes to keep in line while dancing en pointe.
      -i know it sounds weird but keep nails filed, it will prevent some blisters.
      hope i helped!
      also, prop feet up while your not dancing and ice the blisters. it strangely feels really good.
