What Is The Drug To Relieve Pain And Itching In Diabetics?
Hello, I am a type 2 diabetes sufferer, usually when I eat food that contains sugar or carbohydrates, it doesn’t take up to 5 minutes for my whole body, legs, hands to feel sore and itchy (almost like a mosquito bite it hurts and itches) even today, I have tried taking cetirizine, pritacort, but it still hurts and itches, what medicine can get rid of the stinging and itching? or drugs that can immediately lower blood sugar levels quickly? please answer, thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In people with high blood sugar or diabetes, one of the common complications is damage to the peripheral nerves, which is the peripheral nerve that plays a role in the appearance of various sensations such as touch, heat, cold, vibration, pain, and itching. So it is natural for people with uncontrolled diabetes to complain of itching, tingling or other causes due to abnormalities in their nerves.
Even so, your condition can also occur due to allergies, where allergies are closely related to what you consume. The cetirizine drug that you are taking is also one of the drugs routinely given to allergy sufferers. In addition, fungal infections, dry skin, poor blood flow, can also play a role in causing itching conditions in diabetics.
What we can suggest is to have your blood sugar checked regularly at an internal medicine specialist. This is important because blood sugar cannot be lowered quickly without increasing the risk of blood sugar levels that are too low. Meanwhile, blood sugar levels that are too low or hypoglycemic in diabetic patients are a complication in themselves, so it is not wise to immediately take drugs that reduce them quickly without the supervision of a specialist.
Therefore, once again check with the doctor, and routinely control to convey the progress of your condition, as well as any complaints you feel during the control interval so that your doctor can get a clearer picture of your disease. Meanwhile, try to avoid as much as possible the foods that trigger the itching. Avoid warm baths, cold compresses of itchy areas and consume more water. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
