Ulcers are very stubborn and many do take a long time to heal or never seem to. My son had an ulcer on his ear, which made for painful shirt changing. I wasn't very good at putting ointment on because he always rubbed it off. The use of the zinc oxide may minimize scarring. We finally had the ulcer lasered and this finally healed the area... I can;t tell where the ulcer was now. Most ulcers leave a scar.
