Without knowing what your blood sugar levels are - fasting and postprandial - it's difficult to say if diabetes is to blame for your rash. Uncontrolled and poorly managed diabetes is known to cause yeast like fungal skin infections. And, rashes can be caused by other underlying diseases and infections which only testing can uncover. Go see your doctor, or go to ER for a medical evaluation. Good luck -
