Hello, It is good that you are taking medications for diabetes. And most important thing that you nee to do is maintaining your blood sugar levels under 130 because of the boils rupture there is a chance of them turning into a non healing ulcer. You dont need to for any investigations but consult a general surgeon and it will be helpfull if you do so. Thank you
