I know being diabetic and uncontrollable blood sugars can cause wounds to heal slowly. I need some adobe on how to care for it. I've searched on how to take care of it but I want some advice from someone who has had to take care of a wound.

It would depend on the type of wound you have. For me if I get any sore on my leg I will be talking to my Dr ASAP. This is due to an added complication of venous stassis, venous reflux, or venous insufficiency. Had a nasty prolem last year that needed weeks in the hospital and months after with wound care, then a few surgeries. Some of the pain would have been avoided maybe if I had gone to the Dr sooner and not had MRSA.
