I am getting a new callus under my tail bone for the third time. First time it took about three years for it to grow and the doctor just took it off and said it was nothing, the second time I really didn't understand what it was, it was so painful when I was sitting in a normal chair and I was looking and it was big as my nail on the little finger. I took it off again and even that was difficult and painful and it was hard as stone. That is maybe a month ago and now it is starting again and it is growing even quicker. I had a pressure sore there 41 years ago and the skin has always been a little thin there and sometimes it gets red. I have put something we call white vaseline from the pharmacy on to make it soft but it is not helping. It is coming again and I am not sure if it is OK to take it off, I am afraid of the skin under.
I don't know what to do with it and I have nobody to ask now but I am going to the SCI doctor in September or October. My daughter, who is a nurse and been working in a nursing home when she took the education for three years and seen a lot of pressure sores says she has never seen anything like it before.
