My wound was on my leg above my ankle. There wasn't much pain, but it wasn't healing! When I went in for an ingrown that way maybe a 6 on the pain scale (out of 10), The doctor told me she was concerned my wound wouldn't heal on it's own. The doctor cleared my ingrown, but also went out of her way to help me close the wound. It took about 5-6 visits but she worked to make sure it healed. I was so happy. I wasn't sure if it would ever heal. Debbie Timpson
