Since I have the utmost faith in my readers/friends, I thought I’d share it with you!
I will throw in an endorsement for the Band-Aid blister stick stuff. A lot of my shoe discomfort comes from rubbing and raw spots, even in wide-sized or comfort shoes, but this product does a pretty amazing job of fixing the situation. I put it on even under tights or hose and it helps. I’ve heard that it’s basically the same product as what runners put on their nipples to prevent chafing; I dunno if buying at a sporting goods store is cheaper but I would definitely recommend trying it.
Chaffing nipples? I didn’t even know that was an issue… for anyone!
