Sore on my foot that won't heal
Dissa78 posted:
I have a sore on my foot that won't heal. I think it started out as a blister. the skin will come back but it doesn't look like healthy skin and it's loose and falls back off. Any idea as to what this could be??

I have this exact same problem! Sometimes it it gets itchy and I'll scratch it and the skin will start coming off. Sometimes I do pick at it too just out of habit but even when I don't the ugly look skin is still there and doesn't look healthy. I don't even remember how I got it but it's been a month of 2 and it's still there
