Non-healing toe cut: A nonhealing cut can be a sign of circulation or nerve damage. If you have had your blood sugar also known as glucose evaluated recently and it has been determined that you do not have diabetes there may be other explanations. If the cut is located between or underneath your toe i would suspect a fungal (athlete's foot) related fissure. Your podiatrist can help you to determine whether the problem is systemic or a focal infection.
