    I would be curious to see what is happening underneath that scab. Have you seen a wound care specialst about it? Feet and toes are tricky to heal due to circulation eing decrease to those areas.
    I hesitate to tell you any treatments because I can not see what is going on under the scab. And I do not think you should remove it. I would suggest seeing a WOCN nurse/clinic and letting them work with you.
