Some of the causes of your complaint include:

Other infections of the skin
Diabetes is a chronic or chronic disease characterized by high blood sugar (glucose) levels or above normal values. Symptoms that occur in patients with diabetes such as weakness, frequent thirst, frequent hunger, often want to urinate, especially at night, weight loss or the appearance of black spots on the area around the neck, armpits, and groin known as the nigricanttosis dose However, to establish with certainty a person affected by diabetes requires the examination of blood sugar levels.
To determine the exact cause of your skin disorders, you should consult directly with a dermatologist, because the doctor needs to see directly, direct physical examination or other supporting examinations such as blood sugar checks.
Some things you can do between:
Maintain body weight to remain ideal
Exercise regularly 3-5 times a week
Stop smoking or consuming alcohol
Avoid scratching the area of the body that is itchy or has a rash
Keeping the body especially the feet to keep them dry and clean
Use a moisturizer if the skin looks dry. Hope this information can help you.
