Severe resistance to insulin makes it difficult for the body to clear fat from the blood thus triglycerides rise to extremely high levels and skin eruptions will appear and maybe itching. Itching skin can have many causes, such as a yeast infection, dry skin or poor blood flow. A yeast-like fungus called "Candida albicans" is responsible for many of the fungal infections affecting people with diabetes. Dont wait as these skin problems can cause serious problems. Get checked out by the doctor!

Skin Problems of all kinds can be alleviated or cured by placing the affected area in a soak of about 2 Tbl. Epsom Salts to about 2 cups of warm water and soaking the affected area for several days or more as needed, once per day. I believe this will even work on dogs. It is crucial to maintain a healthy diet as well.108200
Intertrigo is the "official" name of the red/ raw looking /painful /sore /inflamed/ oozing skin condition some of us may get in our skin folds. It may appear between your tummy & legs if you have a "dunlop" there (as I do), or under your breasts, between your legs, sometimes between your toes and other places where skin may rub against skin. It can be fungal, bacterial or viral. It is worth getting it checked out by a physician. You now have the "official" term to use to tell them about it
I can generally keep control of my skin problems with a zinc oxide containing diaper cream (see a previous secret of mine) but on occasion I need to get it looked at. I had no idea that it's official term was "Intertrigo" though. Wish it was addressed in "Health A-Z" here on SP.
