Dermatologist 's  Response

See since the skin lesion has now been persistent since a year, so it is very important to evaluate it and look for the cause of the same.
It could be a simple eczematous patch or it can be a granulomatous skin disease or an infection.
She should see a nearby dermatologist soon .
Sometimes in such cases, a skin biopsy is also required to find out the exact cause and the etiology.
