You will need to consult your dermatologist. Most probably these are due to the poor control of your blood glucose level. Please have more control over your blood glucose level and test its level frequently till you reach the optimum dose of medications.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,

Boils are common in diabetic patients .And when these boils heal they lead to hypertrophic scar formation.These infection could be staphylococcal infection or MRSA infection(resistant variety).You should get a culture and sensitivity testing done and take antibiotic accordingly.For topical application you can use mupirocin ointment daily.
