I have tried to take good care of my feet especially since my diagnosis. I think when I was in the rehab center in July after my knee surgery, when they had me shower, I must have picked up foot crud. It took its sweet time to cause deep chapping and pealing and cracking of my feet. I also have several sores on both of my feet. I have been telling my dr and she did nothing until she finally looked at them this past week when she also put me on glucophage.
She gave me a yucky ointment rx to put all over both of my feet 2x daily. It does not look good yet but I can tell the beginning of healing. My heals were so sore on the back of my feet, the threads of my sheet hurt my heals. It does not hurt there now.
ALSO, she gave me another rx for a rash I have had on the back of my arms forever. It has gradually worked its' way all over me. NOW she pays atten and NOW I have to put this stuff all over me. I wont say how aweful this junk makes me feel.
