Don't understand why I keep getting skin infections. I also have short bowel syndrome so my my body doesnt absorb like its suppose to. Is there a vitamin I should be getting more of to help skin?? I already take vit b12 shot and mega vit d.
It's because of insulin.

I think I can help you.
The symptoms of the query are quite often due to use of subcutaneous insulin.
The skin becomes tough due to the injection at the same site.
The best options for healing is to keep changing the site.
Use arms and thighs and abdomen.
Of course almosr any part can be used.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information contained in this message will be able to help you find the best solution for your problem. Best of luck. Dr Mittal
