Re: [IP] Blisters

depending on if you have any signs/symptoms of neuropathy......where you have 
decreased sensation in your extremities.  this is a decreased blood flow to  
(distal especially) parts of your body.  if you have decreased feeling, say 
in your feet, then you are at a higher risk for decreased healing of any type 
of wound or sore.  open skin is also a source for bacteria to hop in, causing 
infection, creating a vicious circle of uncontrolled blood sugars, causing 
your resistance to infection to lower, yadda yadda yadda.......... 

best bet is.......get well fitting shoes.....and check your feet often, 
often, often to make sure all of your skin is intact.
