From Newburg, Maryland, USA:

My 14 year old daughter, diagnosed at age seven, came home from cheerleading camp with a rash on one leg from top to bottom. Only one leg, nothing anywhere else. The doctor said this could be from her not taking care of her diabetes. Can you give me more information on this?


I have no clue what a rash might be from a brief e-mail description. It seems unlikely related to diabetes, however. Go get a second opinion.
