Question:

From Washington, Illinois, USA:

I have had type 1 diabetes for 20 years and had no problems until I became pregnant. Now I am having severe problems with boils, mostly on my backside and inside of my legs. They are very painful, I have seven or eight, and it's hard to sit. How dangerous is this? What can be done to help?

Answer:

My main concern is if these boils become infected. If this is truly a major problem for you, then I would suggest consultation with a dermatologist.
