Running is the most natural form of exercise

Blister/Chafing Prevention

A Figment Of Fitness

This is my ‘home made’ version of blister and chafing prevention cream.

equal parts

Desitin Ointment
A & D Ointment
Petroleum Jelly

Add in

Vitamin E cream
Aloe Vera Cream

To make a paste (salve)

if you want a thinner paste, use Vitamin E and Aloe ointment rather than cream.

This kept me from getting blisters when I wore my Tevas for 8 days in the Grand Canyon and it has been keeping me from getting blisters while jogging.  I do have to wear socks or bandages in my Vibrams because the stitching on the Vibrams name rubs a blister faster than I can always keep ahead of it.  But this stuff works wonders.
