Thanks for the query.

Non healing wounds usually develop when the exact causative organism could not be found.

A culture from the pus will be good option.

Treatment is with antibiotics but the choice of antibiotics should be based on culture and sensitivity tests.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
