When should you seek treatment for a wound:
- You have a wound that is slow to heal or shows no improvement.
- You have a wound with increasing pain, swelling, odor or a change in color.
A wound that doesn’t heal is a particular risk for patients with diabetes, who may have developed nerve damage and circulatory problems in their feet and legs. Injuries to these areas may heal very slowly or not at all. People with diabetes also may not even be aware of the fact that they’ve developed a cut or sore on their feet or legs because of lack of feeling. This can lead to infection and damage to tissue and bones if the infection spreads.
