Has anyone had any issues with WLE not healing fully?
I had mine approx 4 months ago and there is a section about 5mm still scanning over and oozing clear and or yellow/pink liquid.
I know we all heal at different rates but I would have thought your WLE would have completely healed after 4 months. Mine had healed completely by the time I went for my check-up two weeks after the ops.
Have you spoken to your SCNS or your GP about this?

Hi Latchbrook, sorry for slow reply. Have been to the doctors, and have appt at hospital for check up on friday. Doctor gave me antibiotic cream for WLE but I had a reaction using it so had to stop, still not healed. So I will raise it at my appointment, fingers crossed.
Let us know how you get on at the hospital Sonny09
I had my WLE in October and I’m having the same problem as you. I’ve spoken with my SCN this afternoon who told me it’s still early days for the healing. I have to keep a check and ring if concerned. Hope everything goes ok for you.
Thank you Sunny, cant wait for friday, I have 4 other moles/blemishes that need looked at. Two have changed in appearance and two have appeared. Wishing you all the best with your struggles.
