Public service announcement: deroofed blisters

When i saw the term, "deroofed blister," i knew to what it referred: the square inch area on the back of my left foot, for one.

I've bought some of the blister bandages before and thought the main point was how they apparently cushion: not so! In fact, they should only be used on "deroofed blisters" and not on nascent blisters. This time i did some reading, and found another technical term: exudate. Apparently, the hydro-colloidal bandage absorbs the exudate to create the healing environment that makes them so effective.

This post by a podiatrist explains quite nicely, using "weeping" for exudate.

Anyhow, i hope i'm treating this very weepy deroofed blister correctly now.
