Wound healing problems
I have a problem that has begun within the last year or so where whenever I have a wound that causes bleeding it doesn't heal properly like it used to. What happens is, the wound will heal, as far as clotting/scabbing process, but it's much slower than previously. When my body is done with that process, I am left with a brown discoloration where the scratch/wound was that doesn't go away. I'm at the point that I'm worried about getting injured because if this keeps up my skin will be covered with ugly discolorations wherever I have any wound that causes bleeding. This happens even on wounds that I would consider very minor. It's frustrating..
Even more frustrating, I went to my GP but she doesn't know what it could be that would cause that.
I'm 30 years old and have never had any problem like this before.
I'm thinking I should see a dermatologist, but not really sure. Maybe even they cannot help me.
Any ideas regarding what may be causing this to happen to me?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
