I get a red, almost scaly, rash on the back of my calves. It itches to high heaven and it all started over a scratch that got infected but healed about 6 months ago. Should I see a doctor, is this serious?

(The pic was taken after terrible inflammation had already started to subside, as you can see some parts get really red. It covers the entirety of my back calf when fully inflamed.)

Heat rash, razor burn, hives as a reaction to some food/detergent/allergen?

I don't think so. It comes every now and then, but always in the same spot. My BIL thinks I might be diabetic, or prediabetic, and says that's what it is. But, I don't know if that is a condition associated with diabetes. I have been meaning to get tested, but I don't have a doctor, so I use the Urgent Care when I really, really need to see a doctor.
