This evening after my shower I noticed this dark blister type mark on my heel. Blood perfusion is good around the blister but what the hell is it?? Of course straight on Google and I’ve convinced I’ve got gangrene. Any ideas (going to have a very sleepless night tonight worrying.

Can’t say when it appeared as stupidly I don’t check my feet often. Did go on a hike about 4 weeks ago and got blisters on my heel, could it be from that?

If you're worried and have an app for your GP, send them these photos. This works well with my drs and I've always been called in when they want to get a better look at something. Feet are important and us diabetics need to look after them.

I’m going to do an e-consult for my surgery tomorrow. Hopefully will get some reassurance before the bank holiday weekend but we’ll see!
I definitely will be checking my feet a lot more often now (if I don’t lose my foot that is )
Thank you for your response. X
