I was diagnosed 10 yrs ago with Type 2. I've had a fingernail infection for a year now. My doctor won't give me anything cause he says that since I'm on ActosPlus Met ( 850/15 ) it would be too dangerous. So, I've been dealing. My problem now is that I have developed this rash on my hands thats spreading. Not poison ivy or anything like that. It doesn't itch. I've got an appointment in 2 weeks with a dermatologist. It popped up about the same time I started using Humulog ( 5u @ meals ). Any ideas?

Went to family doctor which was a waste of time. He had absolutely no idea and prescribed me a steroid cream. Not better in 2 weeks come back. Ha! I spent 2 hrs on medical websites and found a pic that looks exactly like my hands. Tinea Manus. Ringworm! I live on a farm so it makes sense. I am using Lotrimin for Ringworm and it is helping a lot.
