Ulcer by sarcoidosis and neuropathy

There was a patient that showed up in the office. They had something called sarcoidosis. This caused a problem with neuropathy where they lack feeling in the bottom of the foot. They developed this wound or sore on the bottom of their right foot. It’s a challenging thing to deal with because they didn't feel this wound, it wasn't painful, and we had to find a way to keep them off of this utilizing special padding until this was healed. Just be aware that if you have sarcoidosis, you could develop some neuropathy or a lack of sensation and a wound is always something that is possible to happen.
