Diabetes can cause areas of hard skin (callus) and dry skin to develop on the feet, which if left untreated can lead to more serious problems such as ulcerations and infections that are often difficult to treat.
However, most of these problems can be prevented through good foot care. As well as inspecting your feet daily for any changes, Diabetes UK recommends that everyone with diabetes should be moisturising their feet every day as part of their diabetic foot care routine.
Allpresan is the first foam cream that has been clinically formulated for patients with diabetes, and is the number one cream recommended by the podiatrists at Total Foot Health to their patients with diabetes. When used daily Allpresan forms a breathable, protective coating for the skin which moisturises dry skin and helps to prevent hard skin (calluses) and corns from forming. Unlike conventional foot creams Allpresan is safe to use between the toes and is non-greasy so there is reduced risk of slipping. Also socks and footwear can be worn immediately after application.
Allpresan diabetic foam cream is available to purchase at Total Foot Health.
