Diabetic Foot Picking

My husband and I are both Diabetic. When he feels a callus or anything he goes to picking. He had a big toe removed last year. And, now tomorrow he will have the other one removed because it became infected after picking. Wish I could get him to stop before he loses a leg next!

Hi....sad to hear he continues to pick and creates infection to the point of toe removal.

Have you asked him why he picks? And could he be continuing to pick because of no pain perception?
