* Drain the blister with a sterile needle, and treat thoroughly with anti-septic.
* Tape over the affected area (don't use band-aids, as they don't stay on in the sweaty environment of a shoe), so that any rubbing occurs against the tape rather than your skin.
* Consider using socks that AREN'T cotton (which rubs really badly when moist).

Once the blister heals, I recommend an anti-chafing stick like Body Glide. It really works to prevent blisters.

Thank you very much. I have foot issues and have custom inserts via my foot Dr.'s advice along with the fairly new shoes she recommended. The blister is only on one heel. So far the part of my foot I had issues with is not hurting, so I hope this blister heals. I appreciate your suggestions!

Look for Compeed patches in your local pharmacy or get them on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Compeed-Blister-Relief-Pack-plasters/dp/B004BTV42Y

They are the most amazing things ever. You apply on the blister and keep it on until it falls off a few days later, with the blister usually totally healed. It also provides cushioning so that it becomes painless.

And it might be true that your shoe doesn't fit, or you might just need to break them in. Either way, Compeed will help!

ETA: If it's a treadmill in your own house, you could also walk barefoot until the Compeed arrives! Not with socks, as that could cause you to slip and fall.

I just started walking again on my treadmill and developed a blister on the back of my heel. This is preventing me from continuing to walk and I was finally getting motivated. Any suggestions??
