Some health bodies state that these “dirty looking patches” may also appear around the neck.

Other diabetes-related complications

Though not always concentrated on the face, skin changes are common with diabetes.

Some diabetics who go to develop keto-acidosis, for instance, will notice their skin become hot, flushed, or dry.

The Alberta health platform explains: “Diabetic ketoacidosis is a life-threatening blood chemical imbalance that develops in a person with diabetes when cells do not get the sugar they need for energy.

“As a result, the body breaks down fat instead of close and produces and releases substances called ketones into the bloodstream.
