Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly
Would you mind sharing few pictures of the sores? By sores you mean boils ?
Do you have any other medical conditions like diabetes?
What all have you tried for it ?
Any known allegies?
Do these lesions itch ? Have you used anti scabies cream for it?
Sorry am unable to make calls at the moment, would it be ok if we text?
I would recommend you to use permethrin antiscabies lotion . Follow the instructions on the leaflet.
You have diabetes so its possible that thereis a resistant skin infection there , its always very hard to root them out. You can try topical mupirocin or neomycin / bacitracin combination and see if that helps.
I hope you are keeping your sugars in check as an impaired sugar control would only worsen the things for you.
Hope it was useful,
Please let me know if you have any further queries.
It could be discharge or debris as a result of inflammation. Cant exactly comment without having seen it
Well you will need to get a biopsy of these sores and get it examined under microscope to get a definitive diagnosis. It would be beating about the bush without that to be honest
