spot on his leg. (He is diabetic). it appeared to be a small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> that had a raised scab on it. it was painful to the touch. I put neosporin and a bandaid on it over nite. the next morning it had bled and when I removed the bandaid, something that appeared to be a small stick (size of the end of a pencil lead and about 1/2 inch long) came out and created a hole in hole. Over the next week, the hole became bigger and bigger.

I also notice that ever since my rash in 2002, I tend to crop up with alot of blemishes on my skin. the worrying thing is that they do not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span>, but instead linger indefinitely and make my face seem alittle older. I am not so vain as to care about the aesthetic side, but they do feel abit sensitive to any scratching.
really knew very little about this virus and found a lot of information that said it 'goes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span>' so I had got my hopes up a little. HPV DOES NOT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> away. it is a virus & it stays in your system forever, regardless of what anyone says. HOWEVER, HPV comes & goes. it lies dormant (which many think means it 'goes away') and it practically does, especially for women who keep themselves healthy. it can lie dormant for a long time & never come back up.
If it weren't for the color I would not notice them as they do not itch, burn, or cause any pain. This is in addition to my huge rash on my scrotum that w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>'t <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span> no matter what the dermatologist prescribes. He ended up last time telling me that it was like "red cheeks" and that if I applied nasal spray it would go away for a few hours b/c he said my problem was that the blood vessels were too close to the surface, but I would have the rash forever/wont go away.
Follow up to Oct 15 posting. the week before October 23 was more painful than before. I think it was because I'd filed down quite a bit of skin before the nightly applications of ACV. So, additionally, although I was prepared for the wart to resurface, I wasn't sure it wasn't a sign that I shouldn't take a break and then come back to in in a few more weeks.
Fast forward two years, with the problem coming and going over that time. Recently, I began having scabbing that is very painful and will not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span>. it was more crusty feeling, and my nasal passages felt very dry. I tried picking them out, they'd come right back. I tried lubricating the areas, using coconut oil, neosporin, aquaphor, non-petroleum based jelly, I even slept with a humidifier on, nothing worked beyond temporary relief.
I have not been stressed really or changed any part of my routine. What could be causing this? it w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>'t <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span> with normal pimple cream like I apply to zits or on it's own.
I wish i knew why this open <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> goes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span> for three weeks then comes back then lasts for three days then goes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>away</span>. I made a doctors appontment last week while I had the open sore but when it came time for my appointment the cut had healed up completly so i had to cancel my appointment becuase there would have been nothing for the docotr to see. I am going to keep monotoring this problem. hopefully the sore does not re occur again.
Keloids can occur because of the extra scratching that the diabetic will do on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> that doesn't heal, causing the extra skin to grow. Are your mother's blood sugar scores under control? Maintaining good control will help the sores heal.
