Suggest medication for toe corn on foot with history of debriding in foot

My mother has developed toe corn on the left foot in March 2011 which she was not aware of it basically because she is borderline diabetes and suffering from multiple ailments like arthrities, parkinson and hypertension which she is on medication. The foot has developed a deep hole which debriding was done by surgeon in May 2011 and ointment given. Till now the toe would is not healed which the Dr. said it will take one months time to heal after the surgery. Till date the would is not healed. I am using Betadine solution for cleaning and applying two ointments one is antibiotic and another one is antibacterial and covering the wound with sterile gauge. Please help?

Hello,

Your mother has developed diabetic ulcer.The open sores specially in diabetic and with old age are slow to heal due to decrease in vascularity and increase in chances of infection.

In this stage single most important thing is to avoid pressure at wound site.Frequent dressing will help in preventing infection.

There are some good preparations available in market like silver ion preparations which help in healing wound early as well as in preventing infection(like Megaheal spray or solution).

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Mukesh Tiwari
