Like a Blister in the Sun

So the past week I have been fighting some blisters. I usually will get one on the side of my right big toe and it's not a big deal, I don't pop it. It will eventually callus over and yay, hott feet for me.

Recently, though, my right foot has joined the party, not wanting to be left out. It's my big toe also, right side, and underneath my toe on the ball of my foot, and a tiny one on my crack (just wanted to type my crack, btw) between my big toe. 

Here's the thing, it hurts when I start to run, but usually goes away. The left one is behaving nicely, already been this to party-its ready to leave. My right foot is a different story: I tried not popping it, but it was getting big,ugly and painful.  I tried popping only to have it fill back up. I popped it and put on a blister band-aid. Still refilled. Today is my normal day off, I soaked it in some Epsom salt. I'm not going to lie, this bad boy hurts. It really wants me to know its there, having a great time. 

I'm pretty sure the main reason I'm getting them right now is that my feet sweat a lot when I run, I do use synthetic socks. I'm looking for some advise out there...Take some time off, try something else!?!? Make it go away, I have a training plan to follow...Any suggestions would be great!

P.S. You're welcome for not posting pictures!

Cotton socks would be better--
