If you notice a wound on your foot or leg, no matter how small it may seem, you should seek medical care from your podiatrist or primary care physician. The goal is to take care of the wound immediately by keeping it clean and free from infection. Staying off of your foot as much as possible will allow the wound to have the best chance at healing. Adequate blood flow to the area and proper nutrition promotes healing. As a diabetic who may be suffering from peripheral neuropathy, you may not even be aware that you even have a wound. Examining your feet for any cuts, scrapes or sores on a daily basis can make all the difference in preventing a situation from becoming much worse than it already appears. Our office provides excellent wound care with a wide variety of wound healing products to get you back on your feet. Make an appointment today for a consultation.
