I've been a diabetic since 2000. In the past year, I notice that when I have a wound, it doesn't heal period. It becomes a purpleish red bump that never goes away.Currently I have two bumps on my right hand and three smaller ones on the back of my neck. My dermatologist has given Clobetasol, but it's not very effective. Then I got kenalog injections. The injections are somewhat effective in reducing the size of the bump initially. One wound in my hand had already got three kenalog injections, but the purple bump is still there.
I'm wondering if anybody else is having the same problem. I've been looking for this kind of skin condition on the internet, but haven't been successful. Could this be related to my diabetes?
