Other Illnesses

Question from :

I have patches of white skin which are all scaly, always sweaty, and they smell. It's now spreading to my toes,and when I walk a lot, it feels like something is squeezing my foot which throbs.

Answer:

Skin problems in people with diabetes (as well in other patients) are really hard to diagnose through e-mail since you are not directly seen by the physician. That said, I think that perhaps your own doctor would surely be of more help.
