I developed this almost 5 years ago, and I believe it was a pre-cursur to my diabetes. My father had this all the time (he was a type one diabetic) he passed away many years ago from diabetes complications. We did not know at the time that he had Schambergs disease.
I had gone to see a dermatologist, because of the pigmentation on my lower limbs. And the severe itching that this causes. I now have this both on my legs and my arms. The only thing that can be done for this is cordisone cream for the itching as the pigmentation very seldom fades away.
