Q.

Foot ulcer concern

I was recently diagnosed withT2D. My blood sugar at the time of diagnosis was very high. It has come down into good numbers but I discovered I have something on the sole of my left foot. It’s a black mark beneath the skin with like a slight bump over it. Could it be a diabetic ulcer? If it were a planters wart I could go buy something to treat it but I don’t think that’s what it is.

Hi

It is difficult to comment without seeing the mark. It doesn't sound like an ulcer though, but it must be assessed by someone
