All wounds, regardless of how they were caused, can become chronic wounds. All wounds greater than 30 days are classified as chronic wounds. Chronic wounds need to be checked by a wound specialist to help the wound "wake up" and start healing again. I suggest you seek out a medical provider soon to help with this problem. Chronic wounds can also benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which helps get more oxygen to the tissue trying to heal. Oxygen is a major component of healing.
