What could it be if having a foot blister that has not healed in a year?

I have a question about a foot blister. Might be a fungus of some kind. It just looks like dead skin, but is centered around a few specific spots (3-4 mini holes) and has not healed in about a year. Just recently it feels to be getting deeper. I have a photo if I can send?

Hi,

Unhealed ulcer on foot following blister for one year is a serious condition. You should consult the dermatologist immediately. Thorough examination and investigations regarding diabetes, nerves problem like neuropathies, leprosy etc., may be done by your doctor. Perfect treatment in the form of medicines, dressing and rest may improve the condition.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilyas Patel, Dermatologist
