Foot Ulcer That Won’t Heal

Patient came in for back pain and I asked why is there a Band-Aid on their big toe all the time. Patient said they had an operation on that toe for a growth and after the procedure, there was a small hole the size of a pin head that developed afterwards (infection from procedure). They have been babying the toe for 3 years and was not able to walk comfortable or even play golf with their buddies without pain. I gave them some herbal tea to soak in twice a day. It’s healing quite nicely. You can see there is a crater about 1/2″ deep and 9/16″ wide. The ulcer ate it’s way into healthy flesh and created a home for itself.
