So, I don't see a picture.  Absolutely, someone with diabetes if they have skin issues on their feet needs to show them to their doctor.  Diabetics can have complications and they can get serious.  If this is a diabetic food ulcer, which happens to about 15 percent of people with diabetes, you need to make sure to care for it properly.  https://www.apma.org/diabeticwoundcare  Pressure, trauma, irritation to the skin, etc. can end up being a serious problem with someone that has diabetes and especially insulin dependent diabetes.  Here's another article talking about it.  https://www.webmd.com/diabetes/features/diabetes-wounds-caring-sores#1   I am not trying to be an alarmist but with his pre existing condition, you should get this checked out and guidance for how to care for it.
