Open Sores That Will Not Heal?

Answer

Open sores that will not heal may be infected. A person who is slow to heal may also have other medical conditions such as diabetes or circulation problems. Those with diabetes are 10 times more likely to have a limb amputated due to sores and infections. If you have a wound, and have had it for awhile, it would be wise to make a doctor's appointment. You may need an antibiotic to clear up an infection or they may find you have an underlying condition which causes slow wound healing.
