Thank you for visiting health24.com.
It is possible that he has a form of eczema but I suggest that he consults a GP to have the area examined. It does not sound related to his diabetes, unless the rash is caused by skin infection, i.e. Candida. I also recommend that a blood test is done, to determine the effectiveness of his medication, as well as the controle of his diabetes.
