What are diabetes-related blisters?

ANSWER

Diabetes-related blisters resemble burn blisters. These can affect the fingers, hands, toes, feet, legs, or forearms. They're usually painless and heal on their own. They often happen in people who have severe diabetes and diabetic neuropathy. For treatment, your doctor will help you get your blood sugar levels under control.
