Hi Dikicandra .. Thank you for the question.
Sores on the feet of diabetics are often referred to as wet diabetes when in fact in the medical world there is no such thing as wet and dry diabetes. Foot injuries in diabetics can occur due to high blood sugar levels which consequently disrupt blood flow and nutrition to peripheral blood vessels, whereas in wound healing it requires adequate nutrition and oxygen flow; due to decreased immunity; also because of nerve damage so that patients often do not feel when there is a bang or even a wound. The most common part of wound healing is the sole of the foot and toe.
If it feels painful and there are still sores where the wound is festering and deep enough then it is best to see a doctor of internal medicine to get a direct examination and can check blood sugar regularly. For the treatment of blood sugar the dosage and type of drug should be given directly by the doctor who checks because it must be adjusted to the condition and blood sugar levels of the patient.
Meanwhile, to prevent injuries to the feet that can be done are:
Maintain foot hygiene
Use footwear when on the move, especially when out of the room
Use a mat of the right size
For wound care that can be done are: clean the wound with clean water, clean also if there is pus on the wound, and cover with sterile gauze. And pay attention if there are signs of infection such as suppurating sores, pain, redness, feeling warm
