I've been getting these sores on my stomach since my hysterectomy in 2000. Here's a link to what they look like, except that there is no black necrotized tissue. It does look the same after debridement, and I follow the same process of debridement. Until I debride the dead tissue from the top, which is more like very strong tape, it doesn't heal but continues to get bigger. Once I make it bleed it begins to heal, but takes weeks, sometimes months and leaves a scar.

Can anyone help?

  • Kathryn, I am not a medical person, but wanted to add a comment. My Dad had a skin condition, nothing like yours, but we were told that there was not a cure (Bulliousphymphigas) and that they had nothing medically that would work to alieviate the condition. We began trying home remedies, first we tied Vitamin E poured directly on the open sore. This began to help heal the wound area because Vitamin E is called the skin vitamin. It also actually helped to restore his skin integrity after bed sores he had gotten from the nursing home. To be sure I was putting pure Vitamin E on his sores I bought Vitamin E gel caps and just broke them open and poured the contents directly on the skin. I covered with a sealed bandage to be sure the vitamin E remined on his skin in the needed area. Not sure if that would help but thought I would put my 2 cents worth in. Thanks, Ro
