Wound care refers to the treatment of chronic skin irritations that can be common and chronic in people with poorly controlled diabetes. Chronic skin breakdown or ulcers may occur for many reasons:  trauma; blisters, corns or bunions caused by poorly fitting shoes. Treatment of these lesions requires specialized care by specifically trained personnel such as podiatrists, surgeons, and certified wound nurse specialists who work in conjunction with the patient to ensure good healing.
