Hope that heals quickly. If antibiotics are not working in a couple of days then see GP again as that looks nasty and I know you have diabetes

Hi. That looks nasty and hope the antibiotics kick in pretty quick. I hope you have been told to keep foot elevated to aid healing. Good luck.

Good idea to check with GP.I dealt with leg ulcers for many years and its all to do with looking after our circulation..Good luck..

I thought it was nothing until last night when I looked it up last night. I wasn't that worried when I saw the dr as I thought the antibiotics would clear it up quickly. Just goes to show how wrong I can be.xx

Hello/ wherever you have a break in the skin you open the door to infection..and the toes being furthest away are vulnerable. An ulcer is a wound that has not healed in 6 weeks.Well that is what it was when I last worked in health 9 years ago. Good you are seeing your GP to check.

They can be stubborn buggers apparently. One of the reasons I go to NHS podiatry is so they can check for ulcers. They also have a habit of forming on the calluses that I have on my soles.

I have a RA podiatrist I go to, but at the moment I am under the dr. so I will be back there tomorrow.xxx

I may be wrong, but I don't think any of my podiatrists specialise in RA though some do seem to know a fair bit about it. Is yours a private or NHS podiatrist?

I see a podiatrist every 10 weeks. They shave my calluses and corns along with cutting my toenails. A bit odd perhaps, but I rarely get hard skin.
