SKIN CHANGES IN DIABETES

Diabetes can also leave its mark on the skin, not just inside the body. Here are some ways it affects the skin:

  • Skin dryness and itching
  • Thickening of the skin in certain areas
  • Delayed wound healing after various traumas
  • Impairment or even loss of tactile and painful sensitivity, which is an important factor in the occurrence of skin lesions
  • Skin infections and usually more severe
  • Plantar ulcers

Their treatment requires an interdisciplinary collaboration between the diabetologist and the dermatologist, the control of the underlying disease being paramount.
