I looked into this a bit more and I would suggest you email Dr. Nelson and Dr. Levitin for advice and what to look for/tell your local doctors. Also, you may use a product with zinc oxide to help keep the area protected. If it is extremely painful, you can try to find a doctor that offers laser treatments to help heal the ulceration. Pulse dye lasers might be difficult to find in the Phillippines... but maybe Dr. Nelson knows of someone there. Go to the Ask the Expert Panel on the home page and you can email those doctors directly. Hope this helps!
