In brief: Depends on the cause

There are many types and causes of skin rashes.
Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

In brief: See your doctor

Since you are a diabetic, i suggest your see your doctor about this and do not try to treat this at home.
Diabetic patients are more susceptible to certain things, such as infections, that can get out of hand much more easily than in non-diabetics. Please see your doctor.
