10 Steps to Diabetic Dry Skin Solutions

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.

Ideally, You Want To Prevent Skin Problems.  Here's What You Do...

1. A good place to start is to follow the directions in the report "10 Steps to Dry Skin Solutions." Click here to request this report

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. Stevens Skin Softener Cream has proven to be very effective in preventing dry and cracked feet, and also in relieving the dryness and cracking should these develop.

9.  You must take care of your feet. Check them daily for evidence of injury. Wear shoes that fit well, and be sure they are free of foreign objects before putting them on. Be sure to request the report "10 Steps To Diabetic Foot Care."
