Be sure not to pick or squeeze it. As long as there is no spreading redness, you should be ok to wait until Monday, and it will most likely be better. ...Read more

However, since it seems like you have not had anything like this before that might rule out types of vascular lesions we might be concerned about. Thus, a blister from excessive chaffing during your run would be a possibility - to be sure just go have it checked out. ...Read more
