by Rebecca Rushton

Some people think foot blisters are no big deal.

So I ran a little competition to find some bad blisters, like the worst blisters! And the experiences behind them.

You won't believe the photos people were able to dig up.

Combined with the stories, this makes for sobering reading! 

Enter at your own risk ... don't say I didn't warn you!


 

Worst blister winners of the ULTRA Blister Kit

Pete Dwyer’s 100km walking blisters

I was attempting a 100km walk over three days. Day one was 42k, after 27k I knew the blister was bad but refused to look at it as I knew i wouldnt get my shoes back on. Made it to the end, took the shoe off in the shower and saw this.... went to emergency at the hospital and they drained 9 syringes of blood from each foot.

Leah Tina’s first 100 miler blisters

My first 100 Miler, and my feet were torn up after the 80km mark. While they did get patched up by medical at 100km, they proceeded to worsen. Let's just say, much resilience was taught in those last 70km 😂 (I'd like to learn how to better manage this! )

Thick toenails
Thick Toenails: Cause, Symptoms, Treatment & Pictures

by Rebecca Rushton

Thick toenails are common, especially as we get older. There are also disease states that thicken nails. But you don’t have to be old or have a medical condition to get thick toenails (onychauxis). It only takes one episode of trauma to the right (or should I say wrong) part of your toe and you’ll be stuck with one thick toenail for life.
