From Queensland, Australia:

I have Type 1 diabetes and would like feedback on a deep seated itch which is under the skin and this itchiness causes me to scratch for hours and affects my arms and more so my legs. I do not have any rashes or dry skin of any kind.


Some people experience itching when their blood sugar is high. You should probably be evaluated by your physician since there are a number of conditions that can cause itching.
