Toe injured, natural skin not growing back

Hi, I cut my pinky toe last year. So I peeled the skin off, for a year now my pinky toe has white skin and I have filed and soaked and my natural skin will not grow back. Can you tell me what I can do so I can wear sandals again?

You havent written about your age and your diabetus mellitus status.
Anawys if there is infection culture sensitivity report should be and proper antibiotic should be taken.
And if there is raw area skin thickness graft should be kept or cross toe flap can be done.
And the toe should be splinted with slab for rest.
As i havent seen the wound difficult to comment more.
Get well soon.
Thank you.
