Skin and fungal infections
Fungal infections, caused by the spread of fungus or yeast, are also common for all people with diabetes.
This is especially true if their blood glucose isn’t well-controlled.
Yeast infections look like areas of red, itchy, swollen skin that are surrounded by blistering or dry scales.
The scales are sometimes also covered with white discharge that resembles cottage cheese.
Yeast fungus thrives in the following areas:
In the warm folds of the skin
- Under the breasts
- In the groin
- In the armpits
- In the corners of the mouth
- Under the foreskin of the penis
