owh tu bukan benang...its like dawai khas that they use as gergaji..pulling from sidewards..sampai putus..

yup, ulcer kat kaki tuh sbb radang kt tulang...infection dlm tulang yg menyebabkan area2 tulang tu mati. Microorganism to makan2 tissue2, buat tract sendiri, leading to sinus tract to the skin...tu yg jd ulcer...

granulation tissue tu, its the reaction of body, trying to heal...but fail..so, new cells after new cells...but end up with that protruding tissue yg infected..=)
