Hi there,
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you.
Every scab which doesn't heal suspicious of a basalioma, which is a cancerous issue, but doesn't spread. It grows very, very slowly, therefore you may not even notice the growth.
Please see a dermatologist to have this checked and taken out.
I wish you the very best!
