I know most don't worry about feet issues with diabetes, but there is some correlation with Diabetics having trouble with their feet...right ?? My 15 year old daughter woke up to a swollen big toe that was red, hot, and oozing...she doesn't remember injuring it. We been soaking it and treating it with TLC. Everyone says not to worry when they are young, it seems a bit random that a swollen infected toe happens to a rather healthy teenager with type 1 diabetes. Is it different for our kids..vs type 2 older adults? We are soaking it, treating it with antibiotics and keeping watch that it does not get worse. It is not like anything I have ever seen, thinking a bug bite or microscopic cut that got infected.
