I get the same.
Pop them with a sterile needle- the relief when the fluid drains is great, but leave the skin attached-it'll form a nice hard layer, and you'll be able to run again in a week or so.
I have gone up by a half size for my shoes for any run over 10 miles, and it's been a big help- doesn't totally solve it, but definitley better. My shoes weren't too small either, but your feet do grow a lot on a long run.
I usually suffer with vey sensitive and blisted toe ends ( 2nd one in from big toe ) due to clenched toes and the gen shape of them.
I recently purchased some gel toe caps from Boots 3.99 each and concentrated on relaxing my toes whilst running.
I have had a 95% improvement.
this is very interesting. I clench my toes when running and get painful under toe and top of toe blisters. I've had my gait analysed and had my shoes fitted by a specialist running shop, aswell as purchasing twin layer wicking socks. Another thread recommends duct tape on the areas where blisters are likely to happen. May try that next time. Have also just laced my trainers using the locking method, will see if that helps too. But when you get blisters it really does put you off and makes any subsequent training very painful.
