Take Care of wounds and bruises

Diabetes raises your risk of infection and slows healing, so treat even simple cuts and scrapes quickly. Properly clean your wound and use an antibiotic cream and sterile bandage. See a doctor if it's not better in a few days.

Check your feet every day for blisters, cuts, sores, redness, or swelling. Moisturize them to prevent cracks. (But don’t rub the lotion between the toes!)
