Eczema & Bathing: Skin problems are often the first visible signs of diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Type 2 diabetes can make existing skin problems worse, and also cause new ones. Take control of your diabetes and use our microbubble therapy bathtubs. Listed below are five ways our patented microbubble technology has improved those who struggle with diabetes.
Hard Thickening Skin
When thick skin develops on the fingers, toes, or both, the medical name for this condition is digital sclerosis. Not only does this cause discomfort, but it could also mean needing a physical therapist. The hardening of the skin makes is incredibly difficult to bend and straighten the joints if the skin is left untreated. In order to prevent this, we recommend using microbubbles therapy to gently and deeply penetrate the skin with bubbles 50 to 100 times smaller than regular baths. By allowing the microbubbles to soften the skin, it is easier for the skin to absorb moisturizer, leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft to the touch.
A simple first line of defense is to prevent dry skin because skin that’s too dry can crack, itch and get infected. Microbubble therapy is essential for those who wish to avoid bacterial and fungal infections caused by dry skin by produces microscopic bubbles that can gently exfoliate the body in order to lift any impurities. The size of the bubbles allows for easy access to every pore and essentially pushes any impurities out.
Another common issue for those who have diabetes is diabetic neuropathy, which causes decreased sensation. This makes the skin more prone to wounds that may not be felt and therefore come to your attention at a later stage.
Outbreak of small, Reddish-Yellow Bumps
When these small reddish-yellow bumps appear, they often cause people to feel very tender and itchy. Called eruptive xanthomatosis, these bumps can spread throughout the entire body and flare at unpredictable times. A common concern for those who have diabetic skin conditions is the overreliance on different medications. As an alternative, microbubble therapy can moisturize and cleanse without irritating the skin.
Basic skin care can go far toward helping you prevent problems later on, so it is our goal to minimize the type of skin problems that can arise. If you are looking for an all-encompassing approach to managing your diabetes, we recommend that you try microbubble therapy.
