Diabetic Skin Care Products at Walgreens

If you have diabetes, taking care of your skin is important. People with diabetes are susceptible to a variety of skin problems including bacteria, yeast infections and foot ulcers. Healing may be delayed, especially in the legs and feet. It's also common to experience dry skin that may crack, peel and feel itchy and uncomfortable. Keeping your blood sugar under good control can help with these problems but it's important to take good care of your skin too.

Help for Dry Skin

Diabetic advanced healing skin cream is made for the special needs of people with diabetes. It's formulated to intensively moisturize dry, cracked skin and increase circulation. Rub it gently into your skin to soften and soothe rough, dry areas. It's intensive therapy for skin that needs extra care and protection. The skin on your heels and toes has trouble absorbing moisture because the skin is usually thicker here. Heel and toe cream made for diabetics is formulated with ingredients that penetrate deeply to deliver moisture to rough, thick areas of skin. Make it part of a regular diabetic foot care routine to help keep your feet and toes healthy. While it is important to keep your feet soft and smooth be sure not to put creams, lotions, or oils between the toes because the extra moisture can lead to infection.

Special Care for Hands and Feet

Medical diabetic foot cream is for feet that need intensive moisture therapy. Formulated with soothing herbs and oils with anti-inflammatory benefits, this foot cream soothes and coats dry, irritated areas on your feet. It may help to heal cracks and splits too. Your doctor may advise you to use it daily to keep your feet and toes smooth and soft.

The skin on your hands needs attention too. Hand balms made for very dry skin can be used on your hands or all over your body. Enriched with vitamin E, these creams offer intensive therapy and antioxidant protection to keep your hands soft and healthy. Carry a tube with you and keep one in your desk drawer at work to soften your hands on the go.

Diabetic Hair Care

Dealing with a dry, itchy scalp? Diabetic shampoo and scalp care products are typically formulated with an oxygenated moisturizer. As these types of shampoo and scalp cleaners wash your hair and scalp, the concentrated moisturizer works at a deeper level to help ease scalp flaking and itching.

Relieve the Tingling

When diabetes is not well controlled it can damage the nerves in your feet and toes. This is a condition called neuropathy. If you have neuropathy, you may experience pain and tingling in your feet and toes, areas where the nerves are commonly damaged. When you need temporary relief, your doctor may recommend a pain and tingling relief lotion. These products often contain an ingredient called capsaicin, found in hot peppers. Capsaicin may help to relieve uncomfortable tingling sensations. The lotions are often enriched with moisturizers to smooth and soften dry toes and feet. Plus, they are generally considered safe for those with diabetes.

Words of Caution

If you have diabetes, take scrupulous care of your skin. When you need assistance, there are products available to help. Don't forget to examine your feet every day to look for skin changes. If you develop sores or ulcers, see your doctor right away.
