Diabetic foot: This question is not specific enough. Do you mean what is the best bandage for a diabetic foot ulceration?
Dr. Alan Ettinger

There: Are many different types of wound care bandages. The type of wound allows the wound team to determine which bandage is best.

There really : Is not a "best bandage". Home treatment for a diabetic foot is not recommended. This is a serious foot problem that requires expert attention.
Dr. Payam Rafat
Podiatry 22 years experience
Depends on the wound: There are a variety of wound care products each with specific indications and contraindications. There are various different types of wounds, each requiring a different type of approach for optimal healing. The type of product that one will need depends on the needs and type wound. Consult with your physician as to what would be best for you.

The "best" one: Is whatever your doctor recommends. Different wound care products could fill a warehouse. They have different purposes for different types of wounds. A lot of this is just what the doctor likes to use. Ask a wound care specialist - most of these products are available to consumers and can be found locally or on the internet.

Podiatrist: It depends on what your foot problem is. Most podiatrists see many diabetics in there practice for a variety of foot problems from neuropathy, pvd, nail care. Infections , corns and calluses, and ulcers. I like to see diabetics on a regular basis to keep them from having ulcer and other foot problems.
