Translation:
A wound occurring in the feet from [sc. too] much standing, and continuously exuding serums. The proverb applies to intolerable and incurable sores.
Greek Original:
Χειρώνειον ἕλκος: τὸ ἀπὸ πολλῆς στάσεως ἐν τοῖς ποσὶ γενόμενον τραῦμα καὶ διηνεκῶς ἰχῶρας ἐκκρῖνον. ἡ παροιμία ἐπὶ τῶν ἀνηκέστων καὶ ἀνιάτων ἑλκῶν.

Zenobius 6.46, and more briefly in other paroemiographers. For Ch(e)iron see chi 267. The sense of 'Cheironian' in the proverb is ambiguous: 'a sore like Cheiron's or needing his aid' (LSJ s.v.).
