I throw RHFH 75% of the time off the tee and I used to get blisters near where you were talking about. My blisters would form on the underside of my index finger if I was playing a LOT. Now I have a callous there and I keep athletic/medical tape in the bag if I really play a lot and my callous starts to break.

I use to get blisters when I first started my advice would be to don't pop them and continue throwing and soon they will become calisted then you wont have to worry about it anymore

Fabric medical tape!!! Saves your hands and gives you a consistent release.

Buy yourself a bottle of newskin. It creates a super thin, super protective layer of...well, I don't really know what it is.

Best thing is that you won't notice that it is there (unlike tape) and it has alcohol to disinfect any existing blister.

I used this stuff a ton when I used to bowl in a league and have always been impressed.

I throw a lot of overhand thumber shots and have a callous but sometimes turns into a blister from over doing it. Any tips on how to make the callous stronger or make the blister go away fast? I just want my thumb to be a tank, need some suggestions on how to become a super hero.

I started using paper tape, per this post by Mark Ellis. I've not had a problem since. I highly recommend it, it's cheap, easy and works great!
