Hi

When it comes to dermatological conditions, they need to be seen to be assessed. If they have 'popped', then they need to be cleaned and kept clean to prevent infection. Diabetic patients with high risk feet(decreased sensation, circulation problems) are a higher risk of complications, and they need to be extra careful with potential infections
