Hi, I somehow got a very large blister ( larger than a £2 coin on the bottom of my foot) from running, I dont fully understand how I got it as I didnt run very far and have run nearly every day this year.
 Anyway I dont know what to do about it as I have school tomorrow, I got the blister yesterday so left it overnight. I can not walk on it as it is very painful so I am finding myself walking on the side of my foot which also hurts and is awkward and I am worried of turning my ankle over.
 I have some dressings I could put on tomorrow but they dont help much, any advice please?

I usually sterilise a needle and drain blisters. If it doesn't dry out enough overnight for you to walk on then I'd stick a compeed or similar specialist blister plaster over it.

I agree - drain the blister by sticking a pin in the outer edge of it and draining the fluid out and well, exactly as above really. Provided needle is properly sterilised it should sort it out no problem. Nothing worse than wandering around on un-popped blisters.
