Non healing ulcer .Find out the cause. by 1 .

This one is a venous ulcer. Please do a Doppler for varicose veins and to r/o DVT. May need a perforator ligation to handle the varicose veins ( provided there is no DVT) followed by a skin graft. And good after care with compression garments.

Seems to be a venous ulcer. Get USG Venous Doppler done. It has healthy granulation tissue. Send swab for culture and sensitivity. If infected - then dressing and proper cleaning of ulcer along with lower third of leg. If sterile - Try Collagen granules (Biofill-AB) else Split Skin Grafting. Use skin staplers instead of anchoring sutures to fix the graft.
