Default Fungal skin infections

Has anybody gotten skin lesions from high blood sugar? My last A1C was 9.6 and this skin infection keeps getting worse though I've seen several doctors. Yes, I am having great difficulty correcting and controlling my blood sugar hence why I joined this forum today. This is leaving permanent scars on my face. I have known many diabetics in my life and I've never seen others have this problem before, Thank you

I use to have issues with a rash in two spots. Since switching over to LCHF I haven't had it since. I actually just realized it the other day that I hadn't had it in months. I've also been able to get fairly stable, lower BG readings for the first time in my life.

My brother gets the problem when his blood sugar is out of control and uses prescription Nystop for both fungal and yeast skin infections (not sure it can be used on face). If you don't have a prescription for it, then the athlete's foot fungus creme is your alternative (yes you can use it on face). If it is folliculitis that is out of control, you can try liberally applying hydrogen peroxide 4-6 times a day to the area. I have a family member who had this problem and that is the only way she ever 'cured' it.

Ive had plaque psoriasis for a long time (assumingly while I had diabetes) and as soon as I went on a LCHF diet, the plaque psoriasis went away and I do not use any medication anymore.

Diabetes and inflammation go hand in hand... with inflammation, skin issues can happen.

If you can eat LCHF, I believe the issue can get significantly better if not totally heal

with regards to your blood sugar being out of control, I invite you to post in the introduction thread so we can get to know you better and possibly make some suggestions to help.

we are all in this together!!!

We take Turmeric and black pepper for inflammation and brain fog. It seems to help with my ADD and Ronnie's mental fog from his brain hemorrhage 4 years ago. It helps with my acne and arthritis pain.

Hi Bunjee, does the Nystop work? I've had this patch of dry skin off an on for the longest. I've always used OTC athletes foot cream, and it goes away. I've never had it checked, but now that I've been diagnosed with diabetes, I have an appt with a dermatologist in a couple of weeks.
