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.

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