Comments for this study:
J. C. Fore (3 years ago):
I've been on Lantus approximately 8 years and last summer developed a rash of unknown origin. I was told it was Hives but because I'm on several different medications, had no idea what the rash was coming from. The rash got better over the winter but came back this spring. I accidentally went without Lantus for 2 days and the rash on my stomach began to clear up suddenly. I have been on prescription ointment and antihistimine since last summer but nothing seemed to be working. Only when I accidentally went without Lantus for 2 days did it begin to clear up. I went right back on the Lantus and now there is a rash on my butt. Could this be causing the allergic reaction? What do I do now for controlling my sugar?
