About eight months ago, I found a small lump on my shin. It felt like a cyst and my GP suggested that this was most likely what it was. About five months ago I knocked it and it bled. Then scabbed, then ulcerated. Five months later it still hasn't healed. A few weeks ago I had a biopsy done, and found out it is heavily infected with Staph bacteria. Thankfully not MRSA, the multi-resistant one, but bad enough.
Progression of ulcer from 29/02/2012 to 09/03/2012
Progression of ulcer from 11/03/2012 to 13/03/2012
It has just kept breaking down, and hurts like crazy. I'm waiting on an appointment with a dermatologist, because I also have this other collection of sores around the main ulcer and my GP has never seen anything like it.
