I have a small wound on my skull it's close to my forehead.

Customer Question
I have a small...

I have a small wound on my skull it's close to my forehead. I have burned my skull with iron almost a 10 years ago and this wound does not heal. Part of it because I take shower and it drys out and I try to pick it. I was so scared I might have a brain tumor that I went ahead and took catscan but everything came out ok. I still have this mini cut and it's so annoying. Please let me know what should I do?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I did he gave me vasline but it's no good no effect

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No I don't have any issues. Nothing!

You need to see a wound care specialist

Have you seen one?

What have your doctors told you to do?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
He just said it looks like it's closing up but it also peeks off and therefore still have it. He said put vaslin or oil on it. I did and it didn't help.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Could you tell me what is the issue. Could it be skin cancer?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
