How Does A Podiatrist Treat A Diabetic Foot Ulcer?


If you have diabetes, you need to check your feet each day for signs that you're developing a diabetic ulcer; one sign would be the skin on your feet appearing red and inflamed. Checking your feet is especially important if you have diabetic neuropathy, which is a form of nerve damage that can greatly reduce your ability to feel pain. If you notice that you're developing an ulcer on your foot, you'll need to seek treatment from a podiatrist to prevent it from becoming severely infected.
