Blood blisters from kickboxing
I just started kickboxing this week. I've got quarter sized blood blisters on the bottom of both big toes. How many of you have had this and those of you who have, who popped their blisters and who let them heal and how long does it take for them to heal if you don't pop them?

I once got a blood blister from running. I opened it up, plastered and taped it and didn't miss one thaiboxing class.
I guess it took a few weeks to heal completely, but it stopped being a bother after a couple of days.
DISCLAIMER: that happened a few months ago, I might remember it a bit wrong.
Blood blisters on the toes are level one.
Next class you'll progress to all the skin coming off the ball of your foot in a patch about one and a half inches across. Take some tape so you're ready to stick it back on. And grease your foot up before you go to bed to stop it sticking to your sheets.
It happens, leave them be. I can't get tape to stay on the bottom of my feet when training, so when I get them particularly bad I'll wear tabi for a class or two to give them time to heal up.
Yep, these are the ones I get more often. I've got pretty decent callous formation on the balls of my feet now, but every once in a while I can see a blister deep down in there, and feel it when I walk. I don't pop them, leave it be and it will harden up. If you pop it, you will be hurting for a few days and could get an infection from it.

How exactly do you get blisters from kickboxing?? No I'm not trolling, well not entirely anyway. Is it from the heavy bag?? You will have to excuse my curiosity on this but I have done a **** ton of kicking in MA, not to mention hiking, biking, etc. With no real blister problems. So I'm really confused on how you would get them from kickboxing.
This thread is full of squishy babies.
I'm guessing you either were one of the lucky ones with thick soles, or you took it easy early on and developed decent calluses without getting any blisters. Either way, blisters form from twisting your foot when you throw a roundhouse, rubbing it against the mat.

I find with taping the feet you need to kind of "run in" the tape. Make sure it's on securely and i'll rub the tape so it adheres properly. I use cloth tape for my toes.
Either that or I have hobbit feet. But this whole thread seems a bit whiney to me.
