I was wondering how others deal with minor cuts, scrapes, splinters etc in regard to diabetes. I had a pink toe, put a colloid plaster on it and was told that I shouldn't have done that by a podiatrist. He used Inadine and I find cutting a piece to size under a plaster and slapping it on, deals with any minor cut, scrape etc for me. No-one has ever told me how to treat minor stuff myself and there was nothing on the colloid plasters that we bought, saying 'don't use if you have diabetes'. I know it sounds like a hypochondriac, but I keep a tube of Neosporin in my bag, so if I'm in the country and trip over a root or something I can at least squeeze some of that on until I get to a tap. Do XPERT courses and similar cover things like simple first aid ? Or is just a case of picking ideas here and there ?
