Hi all, I have a questions about skin irritation. Since yesterday the area around my neck and chest felted like it was on fire. When I will sweat I would have a burining pain that only ease when I put cold water on it. Also, when I go outside the heat from the sun makes it burn and itch. Is this something associate with diabetes. I don't see my pcp until december. I will appreciate any answers because this is really bothering me.

It could be a heat rash or your skin is sensitive to the sun with your meds for D. I would go and see a doctor even if its the emergency room. This way you will know one way or another. Also just curious are you on any other meds that say to stay out of the sun? Hugs and hope you heal soon!
