Possibly: This problem can only be solved by seeing your doctor and being evaluated face-to-face. After a thorough examination, your doctor should be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.

How long does it take to heal a chunk of skin missing?

Depends: Depending on the size of the chunk of skin and where the skin was missing from (certain parts of the body are more vascular than others and heal quicker) will decide the exact time frame. Some large "chunks" may even need skin grafting.

Variable.: What part of the body are the holes on? How deep are the holes? What was the cause? Were the wounds dirty or clean? Are their health conditions which could impact healing.
