When to See Your Doctor for Foot Pain: Call your doc if you have sudden severe pain, a recent injury, redness or swelling, open sores or ulcers on your foot, foot pain combined with newly diagnosed diabetets/peripheral vascular disease, or if you don’t respond to self-care within 1 to 2 weeks.
Happy shopping, happy feet!
If you have a bedsore, diabetic ulcer or other dermal ulcer, or you are caring for someone who does, it is critical that you are receiving assistance or advice from a medical specialist. Treating pressure sores (bedsores) and dermal ulcers can be challenging as these wounds heal slowly and must be attended to carefully. Treatment plans includes everything from pressure reduction to wound cleaning/debridement, wound dressings, hydrotherapy, antibiotics, dietary supplements and muscle spasm relief. Even with the best of care, sometimes surgery is required.
Allegro’s wound care category has a variety of products designed to protect wounds and speed healing. The type of products used depends on the stage and severity of the wound. Below are our most popular wound care products for pressure sores, venous and arterial leg and foot ulcers.
Most Popular Pressure Sore and Ulcer Products

Diabetic Skin Care – Good skin care for diabetics starts with infection prevention in the form of daily skin care and skin inspection. Skin must be kept moist to prevent cracking and potential infection of desensitized skin. There are a variety of skin products made specifically for diabetic skin therapy.

Rashy, itching, peeling, bumpy, burning, red, dry, scaly, scabby skin. If you have any of these, you can bet there is a product to soothe or heal it. Proper skin care can mean the difference between a good day and a very painful one. Here are links to products that we hope will bring you blissfully fast healing relief from eczema, fungal infections, diaper dermatitis, sunburns and more:
Remedies for Common Skin Problems
Eczema is very common and there are several medical grade and OTC skin care eczema remedies on the market. Eczema is a family of skin conditions but is generally described as inflammation or dermatitis of the upper layers of the skin. It can be found in adults or children and it is not contagious. Eczema is characterized by itchy, red, dry skin on the face, hands, feet, elbows, knees or arms.
Fungal Infections – Most superficial fungal infections such as athlete’s foot, jock itch, yeast infections and ringworm can be cured with topical antifungal medication placed directly on the affected area. Fungal infections are very common and grow best in warm moist environments so be careful and stay dry! Symptoms range from peeling, scaling redness to itching and burning and/or blisters and sores. Check with your doc if you’re not sure what you have.
See all Antifungals
Diaper Dermatitis (Diaper Rash) or other itchy skin irritations caused by moisture can be soothed, prevented and even cured with the help of incontinence washes, perineal cleansers and moisture barrier creams.
Diabetic Skin Care is important for people with diabetes because of the potential for a variety of skin conditions . Awareness is also key because reduced circulation and nerve sensitivity can make it hard to identify skin problems as they arise. Moisturizers are also important for those with diabetes because high blood glucose results in loss of fluid in the body. Dehydration can quickly lead to dry skin which can crack and invite nasty germs in, causing infections. Out of control infections can result in terrible problems including amputation. All preventable with daily skin care!

Dry Skin prevention and correction can be managed with daily moisturizers. Rub lotion into damp skin after every bath or shower to seal in moisture and ensure great looking skin all year long.
Sunburns need fast pain relief, cooling medicine and sealed-in moisture. Have plenty of sunburn remedies on hand this summer.
See all Burn Care Products
There are 100’s of medical grade and Over-the-Counter (OTC) lotions, creams, ointments, sprays, powders and foams to relieve or cure just about any skin problem you have. Remember to read the labels and check with your doctor if you have any questions about what, when and how to use any of these products.
