In brief: Skin cancer?

When a skin lesion fails to heal and not associated with burning or itching, one should get checked for skin cancer.
The fact that it was infected 6 months ago might be due to scratching thereby introducing bacteria into the lesion. It is only prudent to see a dermatologist to make sure that it is not a skin cancer.
