Hi! I've recently had a slight problem with my foot and, as i'm only 24, it made me think, when is it actually appropriate to see your GP about a foot problem? We're always told its so important to regularly check and look after our feet, but when should you see your GP about a problem, without seeming like a nuisance. The reason i haven't been to the doctors already is because i don't think it is "diabetes related" and will hopefully repair itself shortly. I had a pain in my toe, which i think was a splinter. I managed to remove the "splinter" and it's no longer painful but my toe still has a round red spot/patch on the top but it doesn't feel sore. Is this a case that really needs to be seen by a GP or should i leave it? Just as a note, i do get my feet checked every year by my diabetes healthcare team. Any response welcome! I'd be interested to hear how others feel about and manage their foot care, particularly if you are a similar age to me.
