The Relationship Of Skin Disease With Diabetes?
Hello, I have a skin disease, the characteristics of reddened skin, itching, initially like pimples, so I left a mark. I have not checked my blood sugar, but every time I drink sweet, itchy feeling in the scar, is there any relation between the skin disease and diabetes ??
The emergence of itching on the skin accompanied by skin rashes has many possible causes including:
Allergic reactions can occur due to exposure to allergens such as dust, pollution, cold or hot weather, certain clothing materials, chemicals, food or drinks
Inflammation of the skin or dermatitis
Infection is caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites
Drug side effects
For this reason, in order to ensure that the symptoms and causes are there, it is good to consult a doctor or dermatologist so that the cause can be identified and appropriate treatment is given. Itching that arises due to diabetes itself occurs because of high blood sugar levels will cause excessive production of hormones in the body that can cause inflammation that makes the skin feel itchy, dry and cracked. however it is not always itchiness that arises after every sweet drink caused by suffering from diabetes.
If you have a family history of diabetes, you can have regular health checks every year to assess your health condition and also apply a healthy lifestyle by maintaining your body's nutritional intake properly. Also avoid scratching the itchy area so as not to cause irritation and risk of infection, it's better to wipe the itchy part or compress it with cold water to blow up the itch or use itch-reducing medications such as antihistamines or using salicyl powder.
