Thanks for the query.
Pain and swelling in any area in a known diabetic is something which needs immediate attention. It could mean anything from a folliculitis, cellulitis and even a severe infection or abscess which need immediate attention. Also, the sugars need to be controlled immediately for better cure. If ignored it may become a serious problem. Kindly consider seeing a Physician immediately and get it treated.
Hope this helped.
