Hi,

Your partner would be having impetigo off and on. The diabetes would be responsible for the condition. So, diabetes should be controlled by perfect treatment and avoiding certain food like sugar,rice,potato..etc. And he should take a course of antibiotics and anti inflammatory drugs. Apply antibiotic cream. Tell him to keep the hygiene good and improve immunity.

Hope this helps.
