Assalammualaikum wr.wb r nI want to ask, I have a wound on my leg for about 6 years, it hasn’t healed. In the beginning it was an accident, after surgery I removed all the skin on my legs, the doctor’s plan was to take the skin that was another to be overwritten to the site of the wound, but the family did not allow it, so I was forced to seek treatment from the village, thank God 1 year I went to the village for treatment, my skin grew back, but was still wet and flabby, one year all the skin was changed as before There are only a few small wounds that don’t heal, sometimes the wounds become bigger themselves, sometimes they heal themselves smaller, I’m confused how come, I’ve seen a doctor several times but haven’t had any accurate results until now, I’ve been to a skin specialist , he said he had to meet an anatomical pathologist, after receiving the results he said I had skin tuberculosis so I had to go to a pulmonary doctor, after I underwent a pen treatment for skin tuberculosis for about 9 months but the results are still the same, I have met many other dermatologists after treatment for about 6 months but the results are still the same, I work while treating my wounds until now, even I have to work in a neighboring country, Malaysia now to meet my medical needs. I ask for an explanation from the doctor where I need to go, what specialist doctor should I meet, I ask for help for Indonesian doctors who read my complaint so that I can quickly recover from the suffering I have experienced for 6 years nyan. Amen ya rabbalalamin wassalammualaikum wr. wb

Hello Musliharjo,


The skin disorder that you experience can arise due to several possibilities, one of which can be caused by cutaneous tuberculosis or skin tuberculosis. There are several types of skin tuberculosis, namely primary skin tuberculosis and secondary tuberculosis. For skin tuberculosis, self-medication is the same as for extrapulmonary tuberculosis, namely with anti-tuberculosis drug treatment for 9-12 months. In some more severe cases, surgical intervention is necessary to treat wounds such as secondary skin tuberculosis.


If at this time you still cause symptoms, you need to do a thorough evaluation of your condition, not only from the wound, but whether or not there are other problems that cause symptoms to not subside, such as the presence or absence of other accompanying conditions such as diabetes, immune disorders, environmental factors, factors work, and others.


You can ask for another opinion from a dermatologist or a surgeon or plastic surgeon for the treatment of wounds that don't heal. Examination of specimens of injured skin also needs to be examined to ascertain the cause and provide appropriate treatment so that complaints can be resolved.
