Monday, i went to work... and lasted about 4 hours with those damn shoes on... on one of my feet (left) the back of my heel-- it rubbed against my shoes. so i took my shoes off. didnt wear them again... but during that 4 hours, it made a blister, popped the blister and basically rubbed all my skin off of that area! sad face with an 'EWWW!' i know, i know.
how do i make myself better?! i have a bandaid over it... the area is DEEP RED- you can just tell the skin is lacking in that area. it sticks to my bedsheets when i'm sleeping- so i keep the bandaid on.. at work, i'm now just wearing my regular sneakers, but even that will rub against that area (even though theres a bandaid protecting it). it hurts! help1
never again will i wear woman's work shoes! lol i dont understand how you do it!

Moleskin is to prevent blisters... DON't put it on that raw skin!!
One thing that can help it heal faster is soaking your foot in Epsom salts and warm water... it's like going to the beach
For walking around with shoes... Use a band-aid with neosporin under it, then place neosporin on top of that band aid and place a 2nd band aid on top... that will place the friction between the two bandages.
That skin will toughen up in a few days. Wear the band aid when ever you are sleeping or wearing shoes.... but let the area get some air for a few hours a day!!
