Please attach a picture here.

A honey patch is not appropriate here.

You need to see a doctor now regardless

This can be from a venous problem or an arterial problem.

Bad veins or plaque in the arteries.

Or, infection.

All are serous.

Any non healing wound also has to have cancer ruled out.

So, immediate exam. This week.
