For the past couple weeks I’ve had an issue with one of my big toes. Each winter the underside gets dry which causes a large crack to appear. It’s painful but usually only lasts a couple days and then is gone. However, this time around the crack kept getting deeper and deeper – and more and more painful.
By the time I got home yesterday I could barely walk around the house, so I went upstairs and took another good look at it – and found a large blister next to the crack. No wonder I couldn’t walk! I drained the blister and bandaged up my toe. And can I tell you something? Relief was INSTANT. Obviously that blister has been brewing for a while and only just now came to the surface. The minute I drained it, my toe felt better.
And this morning it’s as though the toe never hurt at all!! I’m going to leave the bandage on it, but I’m relieved that I can finally wear something OTHER than the navy blue flats I’ve been wearing every day for the past two weeks.
