Patient

Q: My aunt is diabetic ...she has been experiencing severe pain in her feet and hands along with swelling ..she is 47 ..plz help

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

Pain and swelling in any area in a known diabetic is something which needs immediate attention. It could mean anything from a folliculitis, cellulitis and even a severe infection or abscess which need immediate attention. Also, the sugars need to be controlled immediately for better cure. If ignored it may become a serious problem. Kindly consider seeing a Physician immediately and get it treated.

Hope this helped.
Regards
