I am in good health and do not have diabetes.
Diabetics who develop ulcers or infections are more likely to develop further complications such as amputations. I would recommend that you be seen by either your PCP or a wound care specialist if you have a wound. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may also be needed if you have a wound that has not healed in 30 days. If you are dealing with an infection, then antibiotics may be needed. Get seen as soon as possible to reduce your risk of further complications.
