You may have another skin condition going on here. My skin is dryer but not itching. I do use natural soap as advised by strawberry mango. I have a favorite seller on ebay by the name of antiqueash who makes very healing soaps for skin conditions. How long have you itched?

I would suggest having your A1C checked and you kidneys function. My husband was having the same problem and he ended up with kidney disease, (CKD).

It is said many diabetics have itchy, dry skin from time to time. Mostly in the winter. There was a discussion on humidifiers recently. You might want to look it up. (email me if you don't know how to search discussions).

Another solution for the itchies, is lotion. Doesn't have to be expensive, just run of the mill lotion. I get mine at the $1 store

Well, it's possible that you may have sensitive skin. How bad is it? And as for itching, you may have a rash maybe, but I don't know. I've not have had a problem like that
