I am 58 year old man. Diabetic for last 10 years and on medication- Gemer 1 Tab twice a day. My Hb1Ac is hovering around 7.25. I get myself examined every 4 months. Of late I have noticed small pimple like eruptions on my hand, neck and Shoulders? These are not subsiding for more than a fortnight now. Slightly irritating but generally not nothing else, except when scratched. Please advise how to get rid of this issue. K Patel Kashpat58@gmail.com.

No details about present blood sugar levels, and investigation reports. HbA1c suggests no proper control. Thus may lead to complications of different organs with Diabetes. Get a thorough check up with all blood tests and detection of complications by a Diabetologist. To maintain perfect sugar levels at Fasting, PP and before dinner. If not normal review of medications monitoring of Diabetes every fortnightly. Till HbA1c is brought to 6.5 or so.
