10 Steps to Diabetic Dry
Diabetes causes dry skin.
Your skin becomes dehydrated because the body is using much
of its water making urine to remove excess glucose from the
blood. Also fluctuating blood glucose levels cause many changes
in the skin.
As a diabetic, you are prone
to developing more skin problems, because your diabetic condition
is constantly breaking down your skin's defenses. You therefore
must take a preventative approach in caring for your skin.
We are all different, and the key to your quest for
dry skin solutions is - a willingness to try various
treatments until you find what works best for you. I trust
that you will find the following information helpful and informative.

2. Persistent high blood sugar
has been associated with dry itchy skin, rashes, skin infections
and other skin problems. The best way to prevent or control
these skin problems, is to maintain good sugar control.
3. Do not scratch dry or
itching areas as you can cause a break in the skin, and
set these areas up for infections. To minimize or eliminate
the dryness or itching, use an effective moisturizer. Such
as Stevens Skin Softener Cream.
4. Potential problem areas are
your armpits, groin and the crease below your breasts. Continual
chafing could break down the skin, opening it up to infections.
Strive diligently to keep these areas clean and dry. Using
talcum powder in these areas is helpful.
5. Do not use harsh antiseptics
such as mercurochrome, alcohol or iodine to clean wounds.
Use hydrogen peroxide and cover the wound with sterile gauze.
See your doctor if there is any question in your mind about
the care of the wound.
6. Avoid hot showers and baths,
and bathe less during the cold dry months. Use a moisturizing
soap like Dove. Also keep your house more humid during the
cold dry months.
7. As a diabetic, your feet
tend to sweat less than normal, causing dryness and cracking.

feet, and also in relieving the dryness and cracking should
