Yes you will need to consult. This requires proper wound care. Debridement and Dressing. Antibiotics may be required for infection. As a diabetic wounds are more difficult to heal and need to be followed more attentively.

Hi.
It needs immediate attention, as it looks like a spreading due to Diabetes.

You should consult a General Surgeon and get evaluated.

A proper debridement and dressing followed by antibiotics will help in healing fast.

But do not delay as it can spread and also deepen.

Hope this helps..

Regards.
