What skin problems can occur with diabetes?

Diabetes can affect many different aspects of your foot health. Most problems arise because of nerve damage and poor blood circulation. When these factors occur, there are many changes that can occur in the skin of a diabetic foot.

Dry Cracking Skin – Nerve damage can affect the nerves that control sweat and moisture in your foot. When these do not work correctly it can cause abnormally dry feet. Eventually your skin will start to crack which can lead to an infection.

Calluses – Because of neuropathy, diabetics tend to adjust their walking posture. This causes calluses to develop. If you start to develop calluses, it is a sign that something is wrong with the mechanics of your foot.

Athletes Foot – This condition should be carefully watched, because diabetics tend to have a weakened immune system as a result of poor blood circulation. Athlete’s foot will present itself with peeling and sometimes blistering skin. If you notice any of these signs, it is important that you visit a podiatrist.

If you start to experience any of the above problems, it is important that you contact one of our Texas offices. You can also fill out the contact form to ask any questions that you may have for our staff.
