Orthotics to properly distribute body weight (pressure along the plantar surface of the foot) to reduce the risk of ulceration. Blood vessels both large and small can be affected by extended periods of elevated blood sugars.
Extended periods of elevated blood sugars can cause permanent damage to nerves of the extremities.
Latter stages of peripheral neuropathy can be devastating if the feet are not closely monitored. With diabetes comes the decreased ability to fight infections, this can be from the circulation not being able to get where it needs to be or alterations in the white blood cells not being able to fight infections correctly.
Wear white socks when ever possible, not because they are the most stylish-because bleeding and other drainage are easy to see,. If anything looks differently, do not wait, call your podiatrist, yes you need a podiatrist on speed dial.
Make regular visits to a podiatrist for examinations, at least every 6 months, more often for palliative foot care if you are suffering from complications of diabetes in your feet.
Contact with latex items, such as latex gloves, may cause rashes in those with a latex allergy. A skin rash from an allergic reaction is usually localized to the spot where the allergen made contact. A rash appearing anywhere on the skin is the body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. For the past four months, I've been getting a rash that can be like all bumps or welts -- anywhere there has been pressure on skin. When my son eats, the area around his eyes will turn red like a rash and then the rash will go away.
My boyfriend keeps getting a rash on his fingers and hand, but we can't figure out what it is. If you get bumps when you're hot you may have Cholinergic urticaria which are red splotches with bumps in the middle and they itch like crazy.
Don't forget about heat rash - I used to get that when I was a kid on really hot days and my mom would have to wipe my arms and legs with rubbing alcohol to cool me down. Anti-inflammatory medicines such as ibuprofen or painkillers such as paracetamol may help relieve some of the joint pain. Your doctor will want to test your urine and blood pressure regularly for several months to check for kidney problems.
If your child has been diagnosed with HSP, they will need to have their urine tested on a regular basis for six months.
The dipstick test looks for microscopic amounts of blood or protein in your child’s urine.
You’ll need to collect the first urine your child does in the morning in a clean container.
If required, your GP or a nurse will show you how to dip the urine with the dipsticks and read off the protein and blood levels.
Typically, this test is done frequently in the first few weeks, then monthly, unless your doctor tells you to do it more often. When blood is seen on the dipstick for the first time, you will need to inform the hospital. Blood detected on the dipstick is not usually a cause for concern and often continues for several months in HSP. If the urine looks red, rusty coloured or bloody to the naked eye, contact the hospital so doctors can check your child’s kidneys.
Usually, HSP gets better on its own within about four weeks and needs urine testing for six months, but generally doesn’t cause any lasting problems. Kidney inflammation usually gets better without any complications or the need for treatment, but rarely it can lead to kidney failure or kidney damage. We have been successfully helping people from Moonee Ponds, Essendon, Sunbury, Gisborne and surrounding areas, Ascot Vale, Brunswick and high level athletes for close to 30 years. I have worked for the TSA for five years and never had a problem with the blue latex gloves.
I am getting red, small, itchy dots on my arms, legs and on my stomach only in the evenings.I went to a general physician, he gave me some antihistamines and a lotion to apply.
Due to the severe pain, I had to double up and it started causing me similar itching problems, so I compensated by taking double doses of Benadryl. This inflammation can cause the small surface blood vessels to bleed into the skin, which results in the rash commonly seen in Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP). It occurs most often in the spring, usually after an upper respiratory infection such as a sore throat, cough or cold. It might be triggered by a bacterial or viral infection, a medicine, an insect bite, or exposure to chemicals.
The rash, joint pains and tummy pain usually get better over days or weeks without needing any treatment. This is either performed by yourself or by a nurse (either at the hospital or one who visits your home).
If it is still ++ or more of protein, phone the hospital so doctors can check your child’s kidneys. It is important to monitor any early signs of kidney problems with the regular urine tests, as instructed by your doctor. You will probably be asked to collect one or more early morning urine samples to be sent to the lab, and blood tests may be necessary. I have recently quit smoking after four years, and I've noticed it's not related, because I got rashes off and on before I quit.
The next morning, I am totally rash free, but again in the evening, these red dots come back again and I have redness on the skin of my hands. Only now I feel like crap.I have a panic disorder, am disabled and stressed, but this is a first for me.
