Wound Care - Podiatrist in Howell, NJ Ulcers are skin wounds that are slow to heal. In the foot, as prominent metatarsal heads on the plantar (bottom of the foot)are subjected to increased pressure, the skin begins to become callused. When subjected to shearing forces, there is a separation between the layers on this callused skin, which fills with fluid and becomes contaminated and infected. The result is a foot ulcer. Ulcers are classified in four stages, according to how deeply they penetrate the layers of skin they have broken through. The four stages of ulcers are: * Stage 1—Characterized by reddening wounds over bony areas. The redness on the skin does not go away when pressure is relieved. * Stage 2—Characterized by blisters, peeling, or cracked skin. There is a partial thickness skin loss involving the top two layers of the skin. * Stage3—Characterized by broken skin and sometimes bloody drainage. There is a full thickness skin loss involving subcutaneous tissue (the tissue between the skin and the muscle.) * Stage 4—Characterized by breaks in the skin involving skin, muscle, tendon, and bone and are often associated with a bone infection (osteomyelitis). The are also four major cause of foot ulcers: * Neuropathic—Related to the nerves and characterized by a loss of sensation in the feet. * Arterial—Related to poor blood circulation to the lower extremity. This type of ulcer can be very painful and is usually found on the tips of toes, lower legs, ankle, heel, and top of the foot. It can very easily become infected. * Venous—Related to compromised veins. These ulcers are often seen around the inside of the ankle and are slow to heal. * Decubitus—Derived from excessive and prolonged pressure on one area of the foot. The most common type of decubitus ulcer of the feet is bed sores on the backs of the heels of people confined to bed for long periods of time. Foot ulcers are a common problem for diabetics. Contact casts are sometimes applied to the diabetic foot to relieve the bony prominent areas of pressure, allowing ulcers to heal. Visit our website: *******www.footdoctorsnj****

Diabetic Wound Care - Podiatrist York, Hanover, Lancaster, Shrewsbury, Pa Dr. Maria Kasper of Martin Foot and Ankle discusses why diabetics must come in for a comprehensive foot exam to avoid the complications of diabetes. *******www.martinfootandankle**** According to the American Diabetes Association, about 15.7 million people (5.9 percent of the United States population) have diabetes. Nervous system damage (also called neuropathy) affects about 60 to 70 percent of people with diabetes and is a major complication that may cause diabetics to lose feeling in their feet or hands. Foot problems are a big risk in diabetics. Diabetics must constantly monitor their feet or face severe consequences, including amputation. With a diabetic foot, a wound as small as a blister from wearing a shoe that's too tight can lead to a lot of damage. Diabetes decreases blood flow, so injuries are slow to heal. When a wound is not healing, is at risk for infection and infections spread quickly in diabetics. When a diabetic foot becomes numb, it may be at risk for deformity. One way this happens is through ulcers. Small, unattended cuts become open sores, which may then become infected. Another way is the bone condition CharcotFoot. This is one of the most serious foot problems diabetics face. It warps the shape of the foot when bones fracture and disintegrate, and yet, because of numbness there is no pain, and the individual continues to walk on the foot. Our practice can treat diabetic foot ulcers and early phases of Charcot (pronounced sharko) fractures using a total contact cast and prevent more serious damage or deformity. This treatment allows the ulcer to heal by distributing weight and relieving pressure. For Charcot Foot, the cast controls foot movement and supports its contours. If you have diabetes, you should inspect your feet every day. Look for puncture wounds, bruises, pressure areas, redness, warmth, blisters, ulcers, scratches, cuts, and nail discoloration. Get someone to help you, or use a mirror. Here's some basic advice for taking care of diabetic feet: • Always keep your feet warm. • Don't get your feet wet in snow or rain. • Keep feet away from heat (heating pads, hot water pads, electric blankets, radiators, fireplaces). You can burn your feet without knowing it. Water temperature should be less than 92 degrees. Estimate with your elbow or bath thermometer (you can get one in any store that sells infant products). • Don't smoke or sit cross-legged. Both decrease blood supply to your feet. • Don't soak your feet. • Don't use antiseptic solutions (such as iodine or salicylic acid) or over-the-counter treatments for corns or calluses. • Don't use any tape or sticky products, such as corn plasters, on your feet. They can rip your skin. • Trim your toenails straight across. Avoid cutting the corners. Use a nail file or emery board. If you find an ingrown toenail, contact our office for treatment. • Use quality lotion to keep the skin of your feet soft and moist, but don't put any lotion between your toes. • Wash your feet every day with mild soap and warm water. • Wear loose socks to bed. • Wear warm socks and shoes in winter. • When drying your feet, pat each foot with a towel and be careful between your toes. • Buy shoes that are comfortable without a breaking-in period. Check how your shoe fits in width, length, back, bottom of heel, and sole. Avoid pointed-toe styles and high heels. Try to get shoes made with leather upper material and deep toe boxes. Wear new shoes for only two hours or less at a time. • Don't wear the same pair of shoes everyday. Inspect the inside of each shoe looking for foreign objects, protruding nails, or any rough spots inside before putting them on. Don't lace your shoes too tightly or loosely. • Choose socks and stockings carefully. Wear clean, dry socks every day and always wear socks with shoes. Avoid socks with holes or wrinkles. Thin cotton socks are more absorbent for summer wear. Square-toes socks will not squeeze your toes. Avoid stockings with elastic tops or garters. • Never wear sandals or thongs (flip-flops) and never go barefoot, indoors or out. • In the winter, wear warm socks and protective outer footwear. Avoid getting your feet wet in the snow and rain and avoid letting your toes get cold. • Don't file down, remove, or shave off corns or calluses yourself. Contact our office immediately if you experience any injury to your foot. Even a minor injury is an emergency for a patient with diabetes. Visit our website: *******www.martinfootandankle****
