Anas Khoury, DPM - Wound care - Podiatrist in Passaic, NJ
Dr. Anas Khoury of of Northeastern Foot and Ankle, North Jersey, discusses diabetic wound care and foot ulcers.
With a diabetic foot, a wound as small as a blister from wearing a shoe that's too tight can cause a lot of damage. Diabetes decreases blood flow, so injuries are slow to heal. When your wound is not healing, it's at risk for infection. As a diabetic, your infections spread quickly. If you have diabetes, you should inspect your feet every day. Look for puncture wounds, bruises, pressure areas, redness, warmth, blisters, ulcers, scratches, cuts and nail problems. Get someone to help you, or use a mirror.
