Has anyone had any issues with itching from the Lantus Insulin? I've been itching and when I scratch I breakout. I'm not sure if it's from the insulin or what but I go see my doctor for my follow up today so I'll talk to her about it.

Eucerin cream. And for diabetics to be itchey is not unusual. I just read that we have extremely dry skin. I didnt realize. But Eucerin is what they use in the hospital and you can get it over the counter.

Yea I'm itching in other areas but not at the injection site. I hope it clears up. My body is just getting use to it.

What I read on their web page mentioned itching or a rash..But they did not mention at injection site..Which leads my to believe it could be anywhere

Thank you. I figured it was from the insulin. I'll have to buy some Benadryl itch cream at lunch.

See what your doctor has to say. If you go to the lantus web page.. They list itching and a rash as a possible side effect of using lantus..Good luck and a belated Happy Birthday
