For those suffering from dry skin, there are many ways to help treat it. Diabetes dry skin is a problem that occurs due to many factors. The main one is controlling your diabetes. If your blood sugar spikes, that means you should watch out for skin issues. Keeping your blood glucose levels under control by eating healthy and exercising is the most important thing you can do.
Another cause of dry skin is diabetic nerve damage. If nerves that control the release of sweat to the skin are damaged, then that skin won’t be naturally moisturized and can become dry. It is difficult to tell when this occurs because many areas of the body sweat. A good idea is to moisturize to ensure all areas of the skin are hydrated. Using our Dr. Hess Diabetic Care Cream will help provide quick relief to your dry skin.
For those with diabetes dry skin is an issue that can be relieved with over the counter solutions and at-home remedies. One tip is to keep away from long, hot showers. It probably feels nice to stand in the shower and clean off, but a shower that is too long or too hot can actually dry out your skin. Deodorants and scented cleansers can hurt sensitive skin, so it may be best to avoid them. Talcum powder is good to spread on moist areas like the toes, groin, and armpits, as it will keep your skin clean and dry, but not too dry though.

Dr. Hess Udder Ointment is not called udder lotion or udder cream. It’s call Udder Ointment. This is no perfumed-hello-ladies-Sunday-finest. This is hard-working, get-it-done, we-ain’t-foolin’-around ointment, originally used to keep cow udders healthy. Invented by renowned veterinarian, Dr. Gilbert Hess, in 1893 in Ashland, Ohio. Used by farmers, appropriated by their wives. Because nothing worked better on cracked hands, feet, eczema, and psoriasis. Now that’s what we call Farm-Strong.
