Is there a special kind of soap that diabetics are supposed to use?
I have been a type 2 diabetic for 6yrs now and I am still learning about the disease. But I am wondering if we diabetics are supposed to use a certain kind of body soap. My skin has been so itchy even though I use lotion.

I've never heard of having to use a special soap, but I have heard that Diabetics need to take extra special care of their feet.

I have never seen diabetic soap before. Maybe you just need a different kind of lotion.

Nothing to do with diabetes. If your lotion has alcohol in it your skin is cracking and little bits of infection is getting in there and causing the itching. Alcohol is a drier. Use oil lotion instead. I'm diabetic too.

For dried out cracking feet use lot of vaseline and put booties on. You won't believe how great your feet look in the morning.

well i'm a type 1 diabetic and have never heard anything about using any kind of spical soap, it doens't matter what you use to clean ur skin just make sure when u get out of the shower that u compleatly dry your feet, and in between your toes.

There is no special soap for diabetics.Itching after lotion may be allergy.


lindsey_osborne
No, there is no specific soap that is recommended for diabetics. Try using a soap that is more moisturizing. Alot of soaps and body washes will remove oil from your skin. Try Dove or something like that. And consider trying one of those in-shower body lotions. I have tried those and they are great for dry skin.

Dry skin is an issue of diabetes. If your condition doesn't improve with changing your soap brand, talk to your doctor. You may need to see a dermatologist for specialized treatment.

Good luck and best wishes...

i went to a diabetes class a few weeks ago and the wound care specialist that taught our class says the best kind of soaps you can use are the ones like dove and ivory because they have moisterizers in them to keep you skin moisterized and not to use the ones that are deorderant soaps cause they dry ur skin out
