Hallo Skin problems
Usually if you have skin problems due to diabetes you need treatment for diabetes anyway as it will affect all your other organs too. A purple reddish face can also be caused by rosacea. I think you should first get a definite diagnosis from a dermatologist as there are medications available for both conditions but you need to know that you are taking the right medication for the condition.
