Guys I have 2 turts they both have a long long story I will tell a part in as short as I can
This is my fav turt he is so excited to see me in that excitement once he jumped off the lid of the tank and fell of result being his finger cut due to his shell impact
Today I see some damage after many months the finger wound jas healed
What time uh think she'll will take to heal what can I do to speed up process

Keep treating with betadine solution. Also try improving the overall conditions of the enclosure (if it’s not aren’t already in optimum condition). Clean water, excessive filtration, proper UV lighting and land area

If it is rotting, it could be shell rot, which is potentially fatal. I would take to vet as soon as possible.

Under further investigation, it could just be an infection. If you see any white on the wound, let us know. I would suggest getting onto a reptile forum.
