I went in the summer of 2011 with my 6 years old nephew to Alton Park. We had 5 hours enjoyment. I started to feel a very painful, burning sensation in my inner legs, towards the ankles. I did not gave importance of the burning: I was wearing long jeans and I did not bother to see what is happening and thanks God that I did that. When we arrived at home I saw to my shock that I have a awful red rash on both of legs. My family was very keen to support me with different advices and their conclusion was that I am undiagnosed diabetic and I need to go urgently to the doctor.
The next day I went to the GP, he look concerned, he did not tell me the diagnosis and he gave me some steroid cream. However, I took the cream just in case, from the pharmacist and went home and decided to try tapping instead of using the cream.
