Please make sure you use sandles or shoes with MCR (micro-cellular-rubber) bottom/ sole. That bottom makes you feel comfortable and MCR is safest material for feet.
They are available at pharmacy stores or even commercial shoe shops like Bata. In fact, the Bata shop sells cheaper and better quality.
You use cream named ' COTARYL' which is available over the counter in pharmacy stores. To be used after every bath. The black spots will go and soles will remain soft.
For the burning sensation in feet, you will have to use tablet Gabapentin or pre-gabalin. Please see a good Diabetologist for appropriate prescription (doses and frequency). Also your feet must be examined regularly by the Diabetologist.
Get back for any further query. Take care.

My husband has diagnostic neuropathy in his feet and it burns like a thousand bees are stinging him on the foot. He has taken gabapentin 3600 mgs and lyrica with the Gabapentin. And it did not work and now he is on cymbalta and oxytocin is not working either Is there a surgery where they can stop the nerves from burning by deadening the nerves and he doesn t care if he has no feeling after the surgery . This is a last resort for him. Thank you so very much. God Bless to you Andrea

I was diagnosed with dejerine roussy after having a stroke eight months ago, I am under gabapentin 600 mg and cymbalta to control all the pain and sensation. Is there cure for what I have? or I will live the rest of my life with pain? Does the thalamus recovers after a stroke?

I am a fibromyalgia patient who started lyrica 4 weeks ago to manage my pain symptoms; however, I am having problems with blisters in my mouth, blurred vision, leg cramps and joint pain. On top of that, I have also gained 10 pounds in these 4 weeks. Would cymbalta have the same issues, or should I try to pursue that medication (insurance denied the first attempted and wanted me to fail a trial of Gabapentin first)...
