A serious consequence of diabetes mellitus, diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) may result in chronic, non- healing sores and increased morbidity. As a result of their resistance to traditional wound healing therapy, DFUs provide a substantial management problem in the healthcare industry. Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) pose a significant clinical challenge due to their slow healing and potential for severe complications. Untreated diabetic foot ulcers can result in serious side effects such osteomyelitis, and, in extreme situations, gangrene, which might need amputation. Cleaning the wound, debridement (the removal of dead tissue), infection control, relieving pressure from the affected area, and other measures are frequently used to treat diabetic foot ulcers. Recent years have seen a rise in interest in herbal-based formulations as potential replacements for DFU wound healing. As the wound heals, several herbal ingredients may help to decrease scarring. The purpose of this review is to determine if a unique herbal extraction can effectively promote wound healing in individuals with diabetic foot ulcers. It's essential for wound healing to maintain the proper amount of moisture around the area. Herbal extracts can assist in controlling moisture and maintaining a healing-friendly environment around the area. Many herbal extracts with anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and tissue-regenerating effects have been exposed as components in wound healing gels and cream form.

Keywords : Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), DFU wound healing, debridement, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial.
