What Causes Itching Sensation On The Skin Of A Diabetic Patient?
1) moderate to extreme itching
2.) Very warm to the touch
3) Slow healing
4) Tingling itch combine with occasional sharp tingling at a level 7 out of 10 for very brief moments.
5) Note, I am currently unable to completely resist scratching the skin in this area which is exacerbating the symptoms and causing bleeding.
I have used Water and Vinegar bath for the legs and that killed the heated tingling sensations ( a feeling of tiny ants crawling on my skin) but everywhere I had scratched of course I had soreness and pain.
It seems that as soon as I think I have the itchiness and stinging pain under control, the itchiness returns and the stinging in scratched areas returns. Also, in the precise spots where the weeping edemas originated, and the underlying skins is till healing, I have sensitivity to cold drafts, as is common to air conditioning drafts that may occur in a home. I also have some small scabs on the back of my lower legs. Overall the skin on my legs is dry and a little flaky. The duration of this event from weeping edema to the current itchy, dry skins with scabs has been 10 days.
