Doctor

A:   Hello,
thanks for contacting askthedoctor.com

Having gone through your history, it appears that you were diagnosed of diabetes mellitus and they treated you for the same.Also blurring of vision indicated that you went into diabetic ketoacidosis.
If you haven't got yourself checked after that episode and yet you have been experiencing multiple abscesses in armpits and vaginal areas, with possible vaginal fungal infection and frequent urinary infections indicate that you are diabetic. Infections are common in severe diabetics .
So it is advised that you may visit your physician for a blood sugar profile and if required insulin management to control sugar values in your blood. Thereafter secondary infections can be treated accordingly.

I hope i have answered your query in detail,
wishing you good health,
regards
