Re: Help: Peeling skin on hands and yeast infections
Both of these can be related to Diabetes or they can be independent of each other. Nothing helps my hands more than gloves and Vaseline. About twice a month, I put the Vaseline on and then the gloves and sleep in them. I also use a moisturized hand sanitizer instead of constantly washing my hands. I have 3 little one's so clean hands are a must for me.
For the yeast, I too have that problem. I have always heard that it goes along with high blood sugars but I have them even when controlled. The only thing that has worked for me is tight control, I eat yogurt with live cultures, only take anitbiotics when absolutely needed, and take Acidophilus. Acidophilus, sp?, is an herbal supplement that you can get just about anywhere. It is for intestinal health which is where the overgrowth comes from. It controls the yeast population. I haven't had one in awhile now so I guess it is working. Good luck
