foot

Well, the big blister on my foot finally gave in, taking with it a patch of skin considerably larger than a £2 coin from the calloused bit on the outside, plus all the skin between the fourth and fifth toes. It failed to dry up over the weekend so this morning I covered it with Melolin and bandaged it up, and then went to seek the help of an NHS Walk-In Centre: where the nurse told me I'd done basically the right thing, and just to keep it clean and dry and it should heal in a few weeks. This is turning out to be even worse than the boot blisters I had in Utrecht where at least it was just lots of small ones :(

So no real exercise for a while... wonder if I'll manage to reacquire the lost 8Kg before it heals?

kind of an antiseptic bath? i'm inclined to wait until it's done oozing, not necessarily so much for the pool as for the ickiness of walking around the changing area...

Yuck, sympathy. I'm still trying to heal a bad combination of sprained ankle and tendonitis, and I've put on nearly a stone in about three months :[

Ouch! I hope it heals fast.
