From St. Louis, Missouri, USA:

My 71 year old husband, who has type 2 diabetes and is currently undergoing radiation treatment for prostrate cancer, has been having a terrible itching on his back and legs for the last month, and the creams don't seem to work for long. If he showers, the water seems to take the itching or tingling away for about an hour. Is this anything connected to the diabetes?


I am sorry I do not know why he has the rash and the itching.
