A Dandy Cure

Yellow weed just might relieve those blisters

No one likes blisters -- on the feet they can get nasty and keep you from your favorite sports for days. Even just walking around can be painful

One of the standard remedies for a bad blister is to poke it gently with a sterilized needle to drain it. But it turns out there's an older remedy that many say works and is definitely easier to contemplate: Dandelions.

That's right. Those yellow weeds are said by some to offer relief. All you have to do, they say, is squeeze some of the white liquid in the weed's leaves on your blister and cover it with a bandage. Be careful -- make sure no pesticides have been used on the dandelions you choose.
