Hello, The most common cause for not healing of wounds is diabetes. Get her blood sugar levels checked for diagnosis of diabetes. Thanks

Dr.  T Chandrakant MD

Get diabetes under control, get examined by a Doctor to know the exact nature of the sore as this may turn to be serious anytime

Dr. Vipul Prajapati MD

hi dear, it may not heal due to constant friction or may you have diabetes. so first of all check for diabetes. Also possible not move much . Consult surgeon if not improved. Take antibiotic. Thank you
