Changes in the texture and color of your skin are a result of poor circulation in the arteries and veins. When your circulation is compromised blood flow is decreased resulting in increased pressure in the vessels, leading to inflammation of the skin on one or both of your legs. The resulting inflammation may cause the skin to become leathery, itchy or reddish.
Corns and calluses
These are thick, hardened layers of skin that develop when your skin tries to protect itself against friction and pressure.
People living with diabetes are prone to having foot problems, often because of two complications common among diabetics: nerve damage (neuropathy) and poor circulation.
Diabetic peripheral neuropathy
This is nerve damage caused by diabetes that affects the arms, hands, legs, and feet.
