    Hi there

     

    Has he ever experienced anything like this before?  I am going to give you the link to our Diabetes site where they may be more familiar with diabetes symptoms.

     

    The American Diabetes Association provides a fairly comprehensive list of diabetes skin complications. 

     

    Since it is spreading and there is swelling involved I would call your dad's doctor right away.  You probably don't want to wait on this. 

     

    I hope he feels better soon.  Let us know what happens if you can.
