Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this blister. Given the fact that you are diabetic, there is no small blister in your case. You must follow treatment fully to avoid any potential complications. Besides, your blood sugar has to be well controlled. If this is not the case, healing would be delayed and superinfection more common. Monitor your blood sugars regularly and report for adjustments to get it well controlled. Make it a duty to wear recommended footwear by your doctor. Also, examine the legs fully so that any potential areas or concern can be identified early and treated accordingly.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.
