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?


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.
