Acne around waistline, hip. Sign of diabetes?

Dear Dr P V S Prasad Good day to you I have sort of acnes around my wasit line and on my hips. I am 46 years old and since age of 12,have been suffering from `acne`. However, I trust that this is not a conventional acne problem hence I have not got such acne problem at my waist line and hips even the imes when the problem was severe. I must admit I am quite fat: 1,74cm and weigh 97,5 kg. Would I consider the fact these acnes at those areas is the sign of `Diabetes`

first confirm whether its acne usually it affect adolescents due to excess secretion of oil glands of skin or excess production of sebum and due to obstruction of sebaceous glands due to hormonal changes. which disappear after some years. well your problem may be a fungal infection which usually affects the sites you mention due to compression due to your clothes and esence of moisture ther confirm it and treat it with antifungal application like micanazole cream . it need not be a sign of diabetes . and after all if you have do do a fasting post lunch blood sugar level. do you have itching there. all the best. don't worry. be in touch with me
