You should always see your doctor if you have diabetes since your foot problems might have a different cause.
If the pain is persistent or too strong that it affects your daily activities, you should see a doctor. You should also seek medical advice, if the condition doesn’t improve after a couple of weeks of home treatment or if the condition worsens. Your doctor will advise you regarding the best options to manage your bunions. Depending on the severity, your doctor might recommend orthotics or refer you to a surgeon in order to discuss the option of surgically removing your bunion and correcting the underlying condition.
