Leg wound that won't heal

Has anyone who has had Basal cell cancer removed from their lower leg had a problem with it healing?

I had two removed from my lower leg, right above my ankle four months ago that refuse to completely heal. One is very red and hurts like the dickens, the other is not quite so bad. A culture was taken & was negative for infection.

And yes, I have been to the doc, twice, and have followed her advice as to caring for them, and no, I am not diabetic.

Twice a day I scrub gently with Hibiclens soap, use an antibiotic cream prescribed, and change bandages.

Am at my wits end!

Hi. I was wondering how your leg has healed? I had a BCC removed from my lower right shin a month ago. It's healing although slowly. It's gone from the size of a quarter to the size of a dime. My Dr. prescribed me a cream used to treat burns since he burned it out.
