Chronic Wounds

Hello, There is a long list of reasons wounds won't heal.  In your case, the most likely culprit is necrotic tissue and/or persistent foreign body (permanent sutures).  Regardless, you will need a surgery to remove the chronic wound tissue completely.  Unfortunately, this may cause a visible contour defect. Best of luck!
