My feet's skin turned black, is it a symptom of diabetes?

Postby Jasa P » Tue Jul 03, 2012 9:06 am

I have problem with my feet. I don't know whether it's due to diabetes or a common foot problem or skin problem. Someone said it's because the germ in water. Now my feet hurt when walking, unable to stand too long. The skin on my feet turned black. I post the picture in flickr

Any help would be great, thanks a lot
Regards

Hi Jasa P

Have you been to see a doctor about it at all? No-one here is a professional, so we can't make any sort of diagnosis, but it definitely looks like something you need to get checked out as soon as possible.

Please see a GP, if you haven't done so already. This might be more than a skin problem.
Blame it on me, but know that I won't regret one iota.
