Does Hypoglycemia Cause Itchy Skin or a Rash?

  • Rashes and itchy skin are not symptoms of hypoglycemia. Patients who are suffering from hypoglycemia may feel a warm sensation on their skin, or a sort of pins-and-needles numbness, but itching and rashes are not a known symptom. Because of the psychological effect of low blood sugar on a patient, however, it is possible for preexisting rashes and itchiness to be perceived as having worsened during an episode of hypoglycemia.

What Else Could Cause my Rash or Itching?

  • There are many other possible causes for rashes, generalized skin irritation and excessive itching. Eczema is one condition that can cause all of the above symptoms, but there are many other potential suspects. To really figure out exactly what is causing your rash or itching you'll need to visit a dermatologist. Often a dermatologist will be able to determine what's wrong simply by seeing the rash or hearing a more detailed summary of your symptoms.

What Symptoms Does Hypoglycemia Cause?

  • Hypoglycemia can cause many different symptoms to manifest themselves in a patient. Some of the most common symptoms of hypoglycemia include: shakiness, palpitations, sweating, clammy skin, pupil dilation, skin numbness, headache, confusion, sleepiness, personality change, extreme hunger, nausea, difficulty speaking, trouble breathing, seizures and coma. These symptoms vary from patient to patient and also with the severity of the hypoglycemic incident in question.
