    Itchy Skin And Scalp

    I have had type one diabetes for eight years and have just now developed itchy skin on my lower legs. The itching is so intense that I scratch and the skin breaks easily thereby causing slow healing sores that leave scars. Also my scalp itches and the same scenerio. Any recommendations for the legs and scalp. I am presently using anti-dandruff shampoo and have tried nizarol on the scalp to no avail. I have tried treating the sores with antibiotic cream as well. What's up with all this itching? Am I the only one???

    Hello, I have type 1 diabetes (27 years) I too have terrible itchy skin on lower legs which I can not stop scratchng, then causing wounds leaving scars. I use aloe vera to try to calm the itchy skin which has helped to a certain degree. I had the problem investigated several years ago but the specialists could not arrive at any diagnosis. However the only time I get any relief is after summer holidays being in the sun and sea then around the winter time it starts all over as it has now

    My mom had this same problem. We tried a magnetic showerhead, and the dry cracking skin on her feet and legs cleared up after about a week.
    Something to do with the changing of the properties of the water.
    I can dig up were we got it. It had a 90 day money back guarantee, so we had nothing to lose.
