Default ulcerating?

My daughter's H just started scabbing over in the center of, and has a yellowish-greenish color. I haven't been able to get in touch with our specialist, but my daughter has an appointment on Monday. Is this an ulceration?

I Am Not A Dr, But That Looks Like An Ulceration. I Think She Will Be Ok Until Your Appointment, But I Would Deffinatly Have It Monitored Because It Can Get A Lot Worse Without Proper Care.

I would agree with Jessica, this looks like an ulceration. if you are seeing yellowish-color it may be infected. Your doctor on Monday will likely have you use antibiotic ointment.
