Itching and irritation in foot
KishorDada posted:
My wife has is facing some problems like itching and irritation in her foot, may be due to diabetes. She gets small blisters in her foot and its fingers. What is the cure for it? Please do me a favor and let me know the solution.
An_251837 responded:
The only way to know exactly what is causing these symptoms is to see a doctor. There is no way for any of us to know the cause or if is related to her having diabetes.

As a temporary measure, has your wife tried creams or foot powders? That may ease the symptoms until she can get to a doctor.
