My mom had clear fluid oozing out her ankles only, the MD said to use compression stockings, that only made the wounds worse. We finally took her to a cardiologist - he ran tests, heart was fine, but he said it seemed that the circulation wasn't working properly. He put her on diaretics (water pills) and potassium (to avoid cramps) and we had to monitor that until we got the correct dosage. leg swelling went down, oozing stopped. BUT if she missed even on day of meds, it came back. She was not diabetic, but I thought you might want to hear another situation....good luck!
