I recently got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last year at the age of 28. Everything has been going well. I am on the pump and have a dexcom cgm. I love them both! But lately I have been having very itchy skin on my abdomen. This is where I wear both the pump and cgm. I do use skin tac wipe to keep my cgm attached. Could this be the problem? I never had this problem before until this winter. I am not sure if it is just dry skin or something more serious that I should see a dermatologist for. I have been putting on more lotion and using anti itch creams which seems to help some. But when I get itchy and scratch I break out into little bumps. They usually disappear after awhile. Usually once I get the itching to stop. But some spots are still there. Any ideas on what it is from? Any suggestions on what might help? Should I see a dermatologist ?
