New Best Friend

Today was a regular work day, nothing special, I do have a few things to blog about however. When Gwen and I went to see Phantom, I wore a dress and the Crocs pictured at left (the blue ones). It is a bad habit of mine to wear new shoes when I have to do a lot of walking. I guess I thought that since they were Crocs and they weren’t heels like my Cyprus Crocs I would be alright. Well, I was wrong, by the time we got to Central Park my feet were starting to develop blisters.

My dermatologist is near Central Park and on Tuesday when I got the prescription I dropped it off at the Duane Reade. They had to order it, which I was ok with since I knew we were going to be in Manhattan on Wednesday. So we went in to get my medicine and look for bandages. Gwen had some but I wanted the special kind for blisters.

It was there that I found my new best friend (relatively speaking). Band-Aid® Friction Block™. Claims to prevent blisters and it does! It looks like a little tiny deodorant stick and you just rub in on your foot where your shoes rub. You are not supposed to use it on already formed blisters (I did, and it kept it from getting worse). At the end of Wednesday, the only blister on my foot was the one that I had before I put this stuff on.

So today I decided to put it to the test, I took it to work and wore my Cyprus Crocs, all day with no tape on my toes, just the Band-Aid® Friction Block™. No blisters, not even any red spots, and no tape residue on my feet. I am definitely taking it with me tomorrow.

For those of you who are expecting pictures from tomorrow, I have some bad news, I lost my camera today.
