I have a couple of things going on with my skin due to damage done to skin prior to my diabetes diagnosis. Once diagnosed, I was able to "reverse" my diabetes rather quickly. I am still having problems with skin, severe drying and wrinkling on top of toes. I also have what look similar to small moles on the lower part of my calves but they have what I would describe as a "waxy" coating on them that scratches right off... strange... So my point being, not real sure why this creme was prescribed. I realize a simple phone call would answer my question, but it's Sunday evening AND since when is a call to the specialist's office ever easy??? :/
