Blisters and Diabetes?

Hello, My name is Anna and I have been a type 1 diabetic for almost 4 years. I just recently have got a blister on my pinky toes and it popped.Just wondering if I should go to the doctor for it or treat it at home. I have an Endo appt next Tuesday so if it doesn’t get better by then I will mention it. Just wondering if its serious enough that I should go sooner than later.

If it causes any question or concern for you, whatsoever, go see a podiatrist. It’s good to have a relationship with a podiatrist anyways. High blood sugar and injuries can make for slow healing and opportunistic infections may settle in.
