My husband has the same problem and a Type 2 diabetic. The skin on
his legs and feet turn bright red and itch like crazy. Non
e of the doctors seem to know what causes it and typical topical ointments; i.e., cortison
e, calamine, Benadryl do nothing except make the areas burn more. Currently, when this happens, he is given an injection
e then a prescription
capsule(s) for several days. We'd also like to find out why this is happening.
