Thanks for the query.     

Pain and swelling of feet with painful blisters suggests possible streptococcal or staphylococcal infection of skin or subcutaneous tissue.

You are already taking a course of antibiotics citromax and now injectable ceftriaxone ( rocephin).

Injectable antibiotics work better than oral antibiotics.

Culture and sensitivity of blood or fluid from the blister will help choose the appropriate antibiotic.

Diabetes does complicate things, it would be of great help if you could write back to me about your blood sugar levels and it is worth doing a sugar level estimation to find out your status.

I suggest you to please continue with the treatment advised by your treating physician.
