how long have you had this?what caused it in the first place?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
About 7/8 months. It started like a blister, then seemed to heal. The scab got knocked off, then scab formed again. The scab came off in one piece, but is not crumbly. Underneath the skin is smooth and pink.
