Good morning doctor, best wishes. R nDok, I have a question. 1 month ago my right hand finger was swollen, very itchy, reddish and felt warm to the touch. A week later he recovered but left a black mark on the itchy area (like dull skin). Not long after, the same disease happened again on the soles of my feet and thank God for healing. But now it’s happening again in the area below the knee. R nPlease explain to the doctor, what kind of disease is this? And how to handle it? R nAs for information, I am also a sweet blood. R n r nThank you very much.

Consult the problems you face with the internal medicine doctor who usually handles you.

The principles of treatment include:

control of blood sugar levels, both with antidiabetic drugs (OAD) / insulin, as well as by adjusting diet and daily physical activity to treat triggers of itching, for example if it is proven that it is caused by a fungal infection, the doctor will prescribe an antifungal drug; if the skin lesions are also accompanied by additional infection by bacteria, the doctor will also prescribe antibiotics. All skin lesions require direct examination, so do not hesitate to go to the doctor who usually examines you. While waiting for the doctor's treatment, avoid scratching the lesion as this will increase irritation and spread the infection.
