I thought that was a side effect of diabetis only because healing was impaired when one was diabetic.
I don't know for sure, but I think if your not actually diabetic, then your feet should heal "normally".
Just my opinon mind.

Okay, so my doctor told me that my PCOS was caused by insulin resistance (hence the metaformin, which causes your body to use the insulin you make better as well as supplementing insulin).

Here's my question:

Do we need to be more focused on foot and leg care, like a true diabetic?

I washed, clean, and lotion my feet regularly. However, the other day I noticed a pain between my little toe and the toe beside it, almost on the bottom of my foot.

I looked and discovered a small, open hole there. It was about the size around as a nail. My Dad would've put it that it looked like I "took a plug" out of my toe. Now, I had nothing there before. It isn't where shoes could rub against it, I wear shoes anytime I leave the house, etc.

I cleaned it really well, put barrier on it (Neosporin), and put socks on. It looked similar to a blister around the edges, so I didn't cover it.

Now, its about a weak later and even with care the "hole" is the size of the tip of my finger and very painful. I will be calling my doctor next week, but I was wondering if anyone knew if the IR side of PCOS means we need to watch our feet/legs more?

Thanks!
