Common Questions and Answers about Itchy skin sore won't heal


Avatar n tn I have this circular sore that won't go away on the bottom of my foot. It is very itchy and flaky and will sometime get raw and bleed from scratching. I have had this for about 6 months. Any idea what this could be? What is the treatment for this condition?
Avatar m tn After several weeks of trying to get it to heal as it drained yellow thick drainage, they opted for a skin graft. A clean split thickness skin graft cut about 4 inches long of tissue was removed from thigh and grafted to this area on his shin. Weeks went by before the skin graft itself decided to take but in the meantime the donor site which had almost closed and seemed healed began to open up.
Avatar f tn it went away for three weeks and then the open sore re occured last week. currenty the open sore is gone but the skin inside my cleft is still a tiny bit pink. I wish i knew why this open sore goes away for three weeks then comes back then lasts for three days then goes away.
Avatar n tn Hello again. I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes. Your brother may be talking about the diabetic condition where sores don't heal. That can be caused by high blood sugars damaging blood vessels, and it's a common symptom of diabetes. Keloids can occur because of the extra scratching that the diabetic will do on the sore that doesn't heal, causing the extra skin to grow. Are your mother's blood sugar scores under control?

Avatar n tn The skin around the periphery is flaking away and I have noticed bumps under the skin around the sore. There is even another small sore that has developed that seems to be healing. I've tried antibiotic creams, just cream to soften the skin, anti-itch cream, and anti fungal cream. And, nothing at all besides keeping it clean and covering it with a bandaid (that's what I'm doing now). Nothing works and this seems to be getting worse. It's been 1-1/2 months.
Avatar f tn sorry, don't know where "broken tibia that won't heal" came from. Please ignore this tag.
Avatar f tn For years now I have had this small hole on my arm that won't heal. I'm not sure when or how it formed but it won't leave. Well, perhaps not small. It looks like my arm got pricked with a sewing needle and there is a red dot from it. It is a hole in my arm. The issue is that it never really heals. All that happens is that it kind of gets a plug of dry skin in it. It doesn't scab and after I wash the dry skin easily comes out.
Avatar n tn long story short dr said it was nothing next dr found it was basal cell skin cancer they removed a penny size cirle of skin and it took some time to heal she is fine ,,,skin cancer these days is highly treatable.,,,,,the only other thing I can think of is her not healing could be a staph infection but the docs shoulda noticed that...did they do a cbc?
Avatar m tn I also get like little tears between the labium major a and the labium minor. These took several days to heal. When the sore itchy patches start to heal I am left with scabby, dry skin. Which isn't nice to look at. Thank-you so much for looking at my question.
Avatar f tn I have recently developed what looks like a cut and scaly itchy dry skin at the top of my vagina.. not in the labia, sort of above the clitoris. I do shave down there and I'm thinking it was a cut from shaving but its been a week and a half now and it has hardly healed. It isn't painful or ***** and did not start off as a red painful bump.... it basically looks like a paper cut. It has been almost 3 months since this sexual encounter and I'm freaking out because it won't heal.
Avatar m tn At about the start of July 08 or so my right nipple became very itchy and i absently stratched at it. in a week or so the skin had come off and it is very sore ( if I touch it or it touches my shirt it will burn or sting) and now 3 months later my other nipple is exactly the same. They both excrete a clear fluid all day long adn then sometimes when untouhed they will develop a hard scab. I have found that it seems to be eczema but any help is GREATLY appreciated.
Avatar f tn I have had a skin lesion on my neck for quite some time now. It doesnt heal and i have been in both antibiotics and antivirals(valtrex). It feels like there is something under my skin, and was quite itchy to the point I kept picking at it... doctors have given me multiple different diagnoses (folliculitus, HS1)... nothing is helping and I am losing hair on the back of my hairline now... It is quite red and inflammed, with a sore in the middle that scabs up but wont go away...
Avatar m tn Hi, (background) I get a lot of problems with ingrown hairs on my face where I shave. In particular, I get occasional thickened hairs that get stuck in my skin and get very sore and resemble a black dot. I usually can free and ingrown hair with a needle or tweeze one that has formed a plug and after intial irritation and soreness they heal up. One particular area has been causing me problems for about 8-9 months. One day after shaving I discovered a small lump under my chin area.
