Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Do you have a clear photo to share of the site?
2) Has the site worsened in that time?
3) Any itching?
4) Any changes in behavior?
