    There could be many reasons why a wound is not healing. I would definitely see a health care provider for any wound that does not heal, or does not heal in a timely manner. With that said, some the reasons might have to do with infection, high blood sugar, inadequate protein intake (diet), incorrect treatment, certain medications (steroids), or for a variety of other medical reasons. First, see your health care provider; he or she can help with this problem.
