I've started to train for the Selection to the Special Forces, so I've been doing tons of endurance training and i've been running alot with a backpack. Due to that, I've been getting some serious blisters on my feet. I've got a huge one on my right heel and it hurrts like biatch!!!!!!!!!
i'm actually ing when typing this.

-in serious pain-
...watch me reap of what I sow....
and BOOM goes the dynomite!
i really really really really really really need some help...it has started to bleed....
well the only thing you can do now is bandage them up and wait until they heal. In the future, try putting baby powder on your feet to reduce friction, or try wearing 2 pairs of socks. I tried them and they are both effective.
Two pairs of socks worked well for me when I used to play basketball. Is the blister on the back of your heel? Are you running in boots? Make sure there's not a problem with whatever you're wearing in that area.
You can also get silk sock liners from almost any outdoor store and they are supposed to help alot. Eventually your feet will toughen up and you'll have big thick ugly callouses but you won't get blisters anymore.

I use a thin layer if crazy glue over my blisters... I know it sounds crazy but it works.

I heard a story once (urban legend?) about a marathon runner who painted rubber cement on his feet to either prevent or treat blisters. Toxic stuff in the glue absorbed through his skin and killed his bone marrow. He had aplastic anemia for the rest of his (short) life. Granted, this guy apparently used a bunch of it. I would be careful what I applied to my skin, though.
Go to the store and buy some stuf called mole skin, I use it when I rollerblade cause I get blisters, that stuff should help you out a lot
