For now you can put blisterpatches on the blisters (compeed), to prevent them from hurting and you will be able to skate or walk in shoes painfree again. To prevent blisters happening again: they also have a stick to make some sort of second skin with. This will prevent the rubbing on delicate places on your foot and therefore prevent blisters from happening.

When I had a blister I used the bandaid blister pads. You slap it on and forget about it. Works great. To prevent I bought a pair of ultra thin EZeefits online. Awesome to prevent the rubbing. I see a lot of skaters wearing the EZeeFit ankle booties. i wear them under my socks, some wear them over, and some wear them barefoot in their boots.

You can also buy a blister stick in the first aid section. You rub it on before you skate to help prevent blisters, but I'm not sure how well it works. I can honestly say EZeefits do the trick. My blister which was larger than a quarter is now healed and has not recurred even after a 14 mile skate yesterday.

If you keep skating with the blisters as you were, eventually you will get calluses which will usually prevent blisters.

One way you can try to prevent them would be to get socks that do not stick to your feet or the inside of your skate when wet. I find that socks that get sticky(or rather, stick to your skin) when wet tend to cause blisters to form much quicker. Check your local skate shop(if you have one) for skating socks. They should have some special socks that are thinner than normal and don't stick to skin when wet.
