I have recently started to get extremely sore at the top of and inbetween my legs (in the creases). I have tried using an antibiotic cream that the dr gave me when the scar on my back breaks out in a sore on occasion but it has very lttle effect. Also Sudocream is too painfully to use as it is quite raw. I have tried keeping it as dry as possible.Anyone else had this problem and is it to do with Db anyway?

Not sure that this has anything to do with diabetes. But I have some problems with the skin in the creases. I have tried everything on the market and there is really nothing that I can use to help it. Most powders and creams just sting and cause more pain since the areas are raw. My dermatologist just told me to use some powder and to keep the area clean. I have a steroid cream that she told me that I could use, but it didn't help. If you find something that works, let us know.

It sounds like the area is constantly moist so it isn't staying dry and healing. I am not going to suggest cream or lotion because it will just make the problem worse. What I am going to suggest is that you thoroughly wash the area with a soap free cleanser and then rinse and dry the area thoroughly. Then use a cortizone cream on the area and make sure it is thoroughly rubbed in. After that use Desenex Powder on the area. (Desenex is an antifungal powder used for athlete's foot.) The Desenex will help keep the area dry so that the area will heal. The reason that the area is not healing is because there is constant skin to skin contact that keeps rubbing and irritating the area. What you have is most likely contact dermatitis. It can be annoying, maddening, horribly itchy. The reason the creams don't work is because when you perspire the area is constantly damp and therefore it just makes the problem worse. (Don't use sprays, use antifungal powder like Desenex that you have to use a powder puff to put it on with.) Hope this hopes. I know it has worked wonders for me.

Thanks for your input.
Have been able to keep it dry and now it's "healed" I use Sudocrem regularly to protect the area. It's working so far.
(Fingers crossed!)

Re:

Delayed onset muscle soreness is quite common and quite annoying, particularly for those beginning an exercise program or adding new activities. A beginning exerciser who bikes 10 miles, followed by push-ups and sit-ups is likely to experience muscle pain and soreness in the next day or two.

Thankyou for your input, but, with all respects may I suggest that you read the complete thread as your suggestions are way off kilter and nothing to do with my original complaint.
And oblige.:D
