Help!!!! The skin on my feet is shedding like crazy, it starts to hurt. I put some cream and socks. I have no doctors around, advice?
Is it doing the same on your hands? Did you walk in a shower/locker room/pool area recently cleaned with a chemical?
My hands are fine. I don't go out, don't wear shoes and practically don't do anything. It also hurts to step on my left foot :(

I mix neosporin and hydrocortisone ointments in equal amounts and apply to any open areas with a nexcare waterproof bandage over it. Change at least every 12 hours and eval for signs of infection.p

Also in the US I get a special cream made by a pharmacy. Has many ingredients, but includes nifedipine (for blood pressure usually) which I think helps a lot to prevent.
I soak my feet in water with Epsom salt as hot as you can stand for at least 30 minutes. Then rub your feet with a wash cloth, pumice stone or something like that & the dry, dead skin will easily come
Off. Once dry, apply with a diabetic approved lotion for feet & socks.

My feet seem to shed a fair bit too ( between the toes) but I get away with rubbing then with my fingers at the end if my shower.
I read a book about diabetes and it says no matter what you have to wear shoes inside as well as outside

Hello all again I am also looking to get an omnipod for my son but our insurance will not cover a pump for him since we have the same insurance.....
Upgraded to the Dexcom G5 I have my Dexcom G4 W/ Share Transmitter (only) available for someone. Started using it late Aug so there is good amount of life left in it. Looking for $100 plus shipping.

Any T1's with tattoo's? My endo discourages even though my A1C is fine.
Has anyone else noticed that your blood sugar goes up while you are sleeping. I will often go to sleep with my blood sugar in the 80s and wake up in the high 100s to low 200s
