Soaking in an epsom salt & warm water bath is suposed to help bruises heal up and feel better.
Wow, just read the warnings on the bag of epsom salt I have had in the bathroom cabinet and it advises "HOT OR WARM SOAKS SHOULD NOT BE USED BY INDIVIDUALS WITH DIABETES, EXCEPT ON ADVICE FROM PHYSICIAN"

Hello, everyone. My name is Joe and I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes on 10-26-10.
Hiya, Julia. Are you on a low dose aspirin regiment? The doc put me on one and because of its blood thinning aspects, aspirin regiments can cause easy bruising and more bleeding with cuts.
I, however agree with the others in saying that I would see the podiatrist or at least your GP if it isn't healing properly.
