hey aldana, thanks for the input -- unfortunately the blisters on my heels are open. they're from my boots, not a sunburn by the way. my sunburn wasn't so bad as to give me blisters! : )
i'm going to take your advice and stay out of the pool until my heels get a bit better. i'm glad i asked on the board because i'm sure that would have hurt like hell. yowch.
on an upnote, i actually went for a 5 K run today. my heels are getting better pretty quickly thanks to some neosporin and gauze. i was feeling good so i taped them up and went out for a loop around the neighborhood. i held up perfectly well, no pain, and the tape stayed put and protected my heels. i'm so, so happy about this. blisters are no fun.
anyway, thanks again! hope you're doing well.
