General Medical Question - Non Urgent - Cut under toe (non-si)
I have got a cut under my toe (one next to little toe on right foot) where the toe joins the foot. It is painful and I am unsure how to treat it.
I have put a lint dressing on it (wrapped a small piece under the toe and around the next toe so it does not rub too much and taped it at the top side of my foot with microporous tape)and wrapped a bandage around my foot for the time being to stop my toe wriggling too much in the night, as it was pulling at the edges and making it sore.
I am diabetic and my sugars have been running slightly high lately (my clinic are helping me try to re-stabilise them), so I know my feet are not going to heal very well if left to their own devices... what can I do to help it along? Is there a proper way to bandage that area. I know to keep it clean, but should I put anything on it or go to the Dr?
Sorry - I haven't had problems with my feet for a while now and so it has worried me.
