The treatment of diabetic foot infection depends on the severity of the infection. No matter how moderate or severe the infection is, the patient has to be hospitalized. Its procedure of treatment can range from basic incision and drainage to multiple surgical debridement and amputation, which can even reduce the need for more extensive amputation.
The infections that are mild in nature are always treated with the help of oral antibiotics.
Emergency surgery is needed for a severe infection in case of an ischemic limb, necrotizing fasciitis, gas gangrene, and an infection related to compartment syndrome. Affected bone is surgically excised, and a course of effective antibiotics is prescribed.
As soon as you notice visible signs of the disease, visit your doctor immediately.
