    I've been taking it slow, have not gone past a mile & 1/2 at a time running fully barefoot at a much reduced pace with a day of rest in between workouts. I've dropped my overall milage drastically & have replaced most of my runs with barefoot hikes on trails 2-3 times a week with a least one fully barefoot run and one run in original super-thin VFF. I'm still waiting for the callous to come in. I have multiple blood blisters on both my feet, any helpful advice would be much appreciated.

    The skin has been injured. It is does not appear to have any infection in these images, but I would put some antibiotic ointment on the area until it heals up. You are landing with too much force, as this injury is beyond healthy. I would suggest that you let it heal and try to land more gently moving forward.
