You can ask, but whether it's the best thing to do, or whether your wish will be granted is another thing.Removing the overhang involves surgery. Doing surgery while there is a possible infection in the wound healing may not be advisable. The non-healing suggests possible infection.At some point, surgery may be advisable to correct the overhang.The best way to know would be to see a knowledgable surgeon to examine you and decide the best treatment. Best wishes.

I have been on three causes of antibiotics. Should I see my doctor will he beable to refer me to see a surgeon?
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 10 months ago.
Antibiotics won't necessarily heal a wound infection. It's local, and requires cleansing measures and time.Your doctor can refer you to see a surgeon. He/she may or may not think it's a good idea.
