The wound will take its time to heal.. keep dressing it regularly and avoid infection by keeping it clean.. in case you are diabetic keep your sugar levels in control..

Hello.. Wound healing depends on many factors like site of wound, type of infection, associated factors like diabetes, hypertension, etc... Heel is weight bearing area so healing gets delayed in that region, if it's associated with diabetes, it goes further.... With regular dressing wound heals.
