You should go and have a consultation with a dermatologist if it does not heal. It definitely needs an expert assessment.

Anything that does not heal need to be checked out by a doctor. He may choose to do a biopsy to be sure that it isn't anything serious. I would get it evaluated as soon as possible by your primary doctor and they may want to refer you to a Plastic Surgeon. Good Luck!

This needs evaluation from a doctor. The fact it isn't healing is worrisome. It could be infection, cancer, or other skin condition. I can't advise you of any treatment without knowing what it is.
