IntroductionDifferent products are used on the foot injuries of diabetic patients with more or less effective results. Calendula officinalis, which is used for its effective antihaemorrhagic properties, also known to the ancient Romans, who used it directly on injuries, is used as a topical anti-inflammatory, healing, and antiseptic treatment, although this is scarcely documented. There is no study in the literature to demonstrate the effectiveness of calendula cream in the prevention and cure of foot injuries on diabetic patients.Case presentationBio Calendula, Dr. Theiss, cream balm by Naturwaren was recommended to 4 patients diagnosed with diabetes and various injuries (micro traumas) on their lower and upper limbs, which showed all the signs and symptoms of ongoing infection: lesions with pus, swollen, red edges, localised heat, and pain. The cream was to be applied twice daily, after cleansing with very mild soaps or bath&shower gel, and warm water, WITHOUT rubbing the cleanser onto the limbs. The cream was to be applied with a gentle massage, until fully absorbed, WITHOUT covering the injuries. It is well known that incorrect treatment to even small foot injuries on diabetic patients can lead to serious complications, including infections that can in turn lead to amputation.ConclusionAs shown in the photographs taken over different periods during the use of the cream balm, the results are excellent; the healing process is easy to see and the progress of the infection process has been blocked, reducing itching, redness, pain, dryness, the disappearance of various scars, regrowth of hair on the legs, no intolerance and great patient satisfaction. Observational studies of RCTs (Random Trial Controls) could help clinics in understanding whether or not this cream is suitable for injured limbs to prevent the worsening of the infection which would in turn lead to suffering for the patient and increased healthcare costs.
