Are diabetics only prone to sores on their legs and feet. Is it possible to get sores elsewhere that don't heal. I'm asking this because I have had a wound for 2 months that won't go away. It just keeps rescabbing.

Have not talked to Dr. but the help of my dear friends on DC I will be making that appt. today. Thank You. I was under the impression of feet and legs. This is why I love this site.

Mays is absolutely correct. And until you can see a doctor, keep that wound as clean and protected as you possibly can. I've had a few infections in the past and I'm fortunate to still have all my parts. Many diabetics have lost body parts to what started as small cuts or scrapes. Don't take chances.

Non healing or slow healing wounds can happen anywhere on a diabetic's body, have you talked to a doctor ?
You do not want an infection to set in !
