    Default Blister Help

    Started back riding out this morning. I absolutley depise the galloping saddles over here because they are rock hard, but really not something I can start complaining about.

    I have a blister on my butt and it is killing me. Big too! So how and what to pad my butt with!? You know it has to be able to fit under my jeans and not look, well silly.

    Oh lord have mercy! I would go with a large flexible-fabric type bandaid, or if that isn't big enough, a gauze bandage with lots and lots of sterile tape. Just one layer of bandage though - you just want to protect it from rubbing.

    It's going to hurt no matter what you do - keep it clean and dry as you can, and sit down carefully!

    These are made for heels, but REALLY work on derrieres Link

    Leave it on for the recommended time (2+ days), it's worth it.

    Thanks for that link blugal. Will have to see if my local pharmacy has those. Would most certainly do the trick!

    Hello Again, I am currently using gauze and tape which is tricky to get put on properly, what with not being able to see it exactly! Well mirrors are your friend, but really OMG. Yeah, it is awful sitting.

    Tesco sell them, or something like, if you're close to a Tesco. Bet any of the large supermarkets would.
