Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  Get your sugars checked again. If your sugars are not in control, Then such things can happen. Drink plenty of fluids.  Take all medications on time and keep a check on your sugars regularly. Consult a diabetologist in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.

Hi, the dryness can be due to diabetes. It is excessive thirst. Don't worry. Just take adequate water when thirsty and maintain sugar levels to optimum.
