My husbands suffers with Type 2 Diabetes and until then only occasionally suffer what looked to be hives (blister like and usually would only get maybe 10) and then it would go away. Now he is getting them daily (about 50 of them at a time) and they itch like crazy and he also gets red splotches all over his back, arms and buttocks and his privates and it itches like crazy. His sugar has been running high but is now almost under control but he is still getting the blisters (looks like hives) and red patches and is constantly itching all over his body. What could be causing this? His doctor does not seem to know either.
