So, Samson has really dry skin. Like, really, really dry, leathery knees and his arms are also dry and patchy. We’ve been moisturizing his knees twice a day but they’re still rough. My other two kids have the typical baby-soft skin of childhood. We even took him to the doctor to rule out things like psoriasis and eczema, since they just looked so thick and rough. (Luckily, that’s not what it is.)
I guess what I’m wondering is – is that related to diabetes? Has anyone else noticed this?
And if so, is it a sign of the underlying damage he’s sustaining due to erratic blood sugar or the underlying autoimmune disease?
