Hi Anon

Thanks for your post and welcome!

There may be some genetic component to diabetes and if you think you may have it, you do need to get tested as soon as possible. Contact your doctor.

Even if diabetes is not the case for you, you need to get that wound checked - you may have an infected wound that needs mediacation.

Please let us know how it goes!
