Avatar m tn I also experiences really itchy skin at times, not as bad as yours though. In my case, I can prevent the rashes by avoiding harsh weather, strong chemicals and strong soap. Keep your skin supple by always moisturizing with mild lotions. Being diabetic, we are prone to more infections so prevention against infection is our best defense.
Avatar n tn Does anyone here suffer unexplained skin problems related to their condition? I have a rash which looks like eczema/ ringworm but is neither of these things and it gets worse when im stressed and my other symptoms are bad. i also get mild acne and very hypersensitive/allergy prone skin.

Avatar f tn For two years I have suffered from a skin rash which mimics scabies. I have had various tests including biopsies. The rash now covers my entire body and itches a lot. For many years Ihave been on thyroid medication for nodules on my thyroid. Could the rash be related to my thyroid?

Avatar f tn Sometimes we can get itchy and burning skin from diabetes and some blood disorders and from dry skin. The skin dries as we age. You may even have an allergy to your soaps, perfumes and detergents. Use non-biological washing detergents and only use fabric softeners suitable for sensitive skin. Don't use perfumed and harsh soaps. If your rash does not go away, go back to your doctor.
Avatar n tn As many as one third of people with diabetes will have a skin disorder caused or affected by diabetes at some time in their lives. Some of these problems are skin conditions anyone can have, but people with diabetes get more easily. These include bacterial infections, fungal infections, and itching. Yeast-like fungus can create itchy rashes of moist, red areas surrounded by tiny blisters and scales. These infections often occur in warm, moist folds of the skin.

Avatar m tn Hello, I am a working lady and was suffering from acne rashes on cheeks and forehead. Due to lack of time I couldn't take proper care of my skin. Everyday dirt and pollution were making my skin dull and ugly. Many people gave me many advices but they doesn't work. Then I saw the product, Himani BOROPLUS Anti-acne cream on online and I ordered one. I am using it for about 4 months and my acne rashes are reduced in size. I think you can also make a try and hope it will also work for you.
Avatar f tn Rash in scabies is usually found in the folds of skin and they are red blister like rashes. it can be due to allergic reaction, hives or insect bites. Take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin and apply some calamine lotion on the rash. If the symptoms persist then please get it examined from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar m tn I have had rashes and dark skin on and around scrotum and inner thigh for last 5-6 years. In the beginning rashes and small cuts used to appear between inner thighs and they would heal themselves but they left dark and loose skin when they disappeared. But for last 2-3 months these rashes and cuts started appearing again in ferocious way and these have extended on testicle skins too. When they appear it itches too much results in small cuts with small blood. i m very depressed.
Avatar n tn Lichen planus is an inflammatory disease that affects the skin and the oral mucosa, and presents itself in the form of papules (flat spots) or rashes. Treatment is available only on prescription and consists mainly of steroids, retinoids, hydroquinone and phototherapy. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Avatar f tn the pimple like bumps sound like in grown hairs....I get them too and they are exactly as you describe them. Are you on any kind of Steroids....even ADVAIR? Because Steroids play a big part in not healing quickly. And finally the rashes you speak of don't sound diabetic related because normally diabetics get lesions on there skin that turn into big open sores rather than rashes.....I've never heard of a diabetic getting a rash that was related to diabetes, and I'm a diabetic myself.
Avatar n tn I too am experiencing skin problems but they started after I started taking insulin. I don't know if it's the insulin or the diabetes or other health problems that is causing that. My doctor prescribed Erythromiacin topical solution and it seems to clear the bumps up before they they come to a head and get infected. If you start getting red flakey patches I can tell you what does and doesn't work for that also.
Avatar f tn hey folks - i am waiting to hear back from my GI who will probably send me to my primary doc who will then send me to a dermatologist, so i just wanted a little info while i wait - it's kinda gross but i'll let it rip ==== i have nasty red rashes on areas of my body. i am overweight and the rashes (looks like red spiderwebs) are under my breasts, in my groin area, under my tummy and is now spreading to under my love handles on my back.
Avatar f tn I have skin allergies I describe them as swollen and itchy it started as a small dot but when you scratch it more it becomes bigger.What kind of allergy is this?
