In brief: Yes

Time to see a wound specialist who will make a determination as to wound type, why it failed to heal and a treatment plan.

In brief: Yes

There are many reasons why your wound won't heal: poor blood sugar, poor circulations, resistance infections, cancer.
..You should see your physician to have this checked out.
