It is a serious diabetic complication in which the foot gradually loses its sense and causes blood circulation disorder, followed by infection and ulceration, severe limb necrosis and even life-threatening. At the beginning of our Department, we inherited the experience of the older generation of famous doctors in Beijing, such as Zhao Bingnan, Fang Zhixuan and Wang Yuzhang, in the treatment of skin pyocutaneous diseases, inherited and developed more than 40 kinds of traditional Chinese medicine(TCM) external preparations, such as red gauze, No.1 gauze, No.2 gauze, gauze of restoring Yang to promote tissue regeneration, Furong ointment and so on.
