Prewcription topical/, steroids and topicalxylocaibe or zonalon (doxepin) can offer relief. The diabetes'must be well controlled. For peripheral nerve changes Alpha lipoid acid may be helpful.
Have it evaluated. There are many things that could cause the skin to itch. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
