Locations of Foot Ulcers

h9991432_002.jpg

Diabetic foot ulcers usually occur on the bottom of the foot. They can also appear along the top and bottom of each toe. Shoes that do not fit well can cause ulcers on the sides of the feet.

Areas of the foot that have already had an ulcer may need more protection after healing, to prevent an ulcer from forming there again.
