Hi, I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes.  You don't say if you're a type 1 diabetic, but presumably that's why you asked the question.  If your blood sugars are under control, the healing and redness afterwards should go away in normal timeframes.  If not, most any lotion which does a good job of retaining moisture and is soothing to the skin should be ok for you.

You may want to use Mederma.  It is a topical creme and it is supposed to help avoid scarring.  It is also recommended for diabetics.

Hope this helps.
