If it was me, I'd drain them then stick compeed patches on. If the compeeds didn't cover them up or didn't reduce the discomfort to almost zero, I wouldn't run.

Tesco blister plasters are every bit as good as compeed and cost a quarter of the price.

Oh, I completely agree. I use 'compeed' the way people use 'Hoover' to mean any vacuum cleaner. I do use actual compress but I buy them cheap on eBay - a fiver for 30 of them...

I became very good with blisters after a very wet marathon, I was plagued by them for 6 months. Injinji toe socks cured them for me

Compeer are the way to go with blisters, saved my bacon for the Birmingham half few weeks back, like a couple of extra layers of skin!! Thanks or the tip about ebay runs-with-dogs, paying a fiver for 5 bloody expensive!! Xx
