* SOLUTIONS What to Do


While diabetic dermopathy is harmless, it may be a sign that blood glucose levels are too high. See your provider for an A1C test and to determine if you need to take steps to better manage your diabetes.


REDDISH-YELLOW BUMPS ON THE SKIN (ERUPTIVE XANTHOMATOSIS) Patches of bumps that look like small pimples, but develop a reddish-yellow color, may erupt on the but- tocks, thighs, crooks of the elbow, backs of the knees or elsewhere on the body. They can be tender or itchy.


What to Do Eruptive xanthomatosis is a sign that your diabetes is not under control, and blood glucose levels have risen too high. See your provider to discuss how to bring levels back under control.


GENERAL SKINCARE Like everyone, people with diabetes should apply sun- screen before going outside. Research has shown that using sunscreen daily also slows the effects of aging on the skin, so there’s an added bonus to protecting your skin from the sun’s rays.


In addition to using sunscreen and moisturizer, you should always keep a first-aid kit on hand (at home and when you travel) that contains antibacterial oint- ment, gauze pads, prepackaged cleansing towelettes and hypoallergenic tape to care for any blisters, sores or wounds that may occur.


Be sure to contact your provider in case of major cuts, burns or infections, skin changes that don’t go away or rashes that develop.
