From Kuwait:

I am middle-aged female, and I have had Typeá2 diabetes since I was 12 years old. Every time I start doing exercises and walking I have a skin allergy. I don't know what to do.


Do you exercise or walk outside? It is possible that you are experiencing a skin reaction to the sun or other elements in the outside air. Wearing sunscreen and long sleeves might help. I would suggest you discuss this with your physician and decide what you should do.
