For patients with diabetes, treating wounds on the foot as soon as possible is key. Nerve damage can limit your ability to feel pain or infection, so be sure to check your feet for minor scrapes and cuts regularly. Even if it seems minor, always visit your podiatrist for diabetic wound care to err on the safe side.
Patients without diabetes may also require wound care for a serious injury that necessitates stitches or a dirty wound needing proficient cleaning. If you see any signs of infection, such as puss, pain or swelling, call our office immediately. In cases of animal bites, relentless bleeding or significant trauma, visit your nearest emergency room as soon as possible.
