Leg Ulcers 7 Facts About Leg Ulcers You Must Know

Оценок: 1461 | Просмотров: 312694
Important facts about leg ulcers, what causes them, how they can be prevented and cured. http://theveincarecentre.co.uk/ 01935 873 951 https://www.facebook.com/theveincarecentre https://www.iwantgreatcare.org/doctors/dr-haroun-gajraj Leg ulcers are common -- approximately 2% of adults will have a leg ulcer at some stage in their lives. Literally thousands of people develop a leg ulcer each year in the United Kingdom and many of those get more leg ulcers as the years go by. Despite the misery they cause, leg ulcers remain a neglected problem. I am going to tell you the 7 essential facts should you know about leg ulcers. Number 1 -- What is an ulcer? The medical definition of an ulcer is a break in the epithelium of a body surface or lining. Many of us will be familiar with a mouth ulcer. This is a break in the cell lining the mouth. It can be caused by an injury such as biting the inside of the mouth by accident. Well if the skin breaks down anywhere on the body it is called an ulcer. If the ulcer is on the leg and has been present for more than 6 weeks it is called a chronic leg ulcer. Number 2- What causes a leg ulcer? Four out of 5 ulcers -- that's 80% - are caused by a problem with the leg vein pump and they are called venous ulcers. The leg vein pump is the mechanism by which blood flows out of the leg back to the heart. So problems with the deep veins such as obstruction from a deep vein thrombosis, superficial vein reflux or perforator vein problems can cause venous leg ulcers. The leg vein pump depends mainly on good ankle movement, good calf muscles and healthy leg veins. A minority of leg ulcers - about 15% - are caused by problems in the arteries that carry blood into the leg. About 95% of venous leg ulcers can be correctly identified by their appearance, by checking for pulses in the feet and by checking sensation. As most leg ulcers are venous -- that's what I am going to concentrate on. Number 3 -- Where on the leg do you get venous ulcers? Well venous leg ulcers appear on the lower part of the leg usually just about the ankle. Often, there are varicose veins or thread veins around the ulcer and the leg is usually swollen. The skin is often thickened and discoloured by varicose eczema which may actually develop many months or years before the ulcer as a warning sign that the vein circulation is not normal. Number 4 -- Who gets a venous ulcer? Well these ulcers affect people who have deep vein problems, usually from a past deep vein thrombosis (DVT), people who have superficial venous disease or those with ankle mobility problems. Leg ulcers are more common as we get older. Number 5 -- How do you treat venous ulcers? The aim of treatment is to get the ulcer healed as quickly as possible. This usually means graduated compression either with bandages or compression stockings. In most cases, antibiotics, creams and ointments are not necessary. Once the ulcer is healed it is very important to identify any problems with the superficial veins or perforator veins and that these are treated to reduce the risk of another ulcer. This means getting a full assessment with a duplex ultrasound scan. Number 6- Can you cure a leg ulcer? Well this is controversial. Some would say that if the problem is only in the superficial veins, the veins under the skin, or in the perforator veins that connect these superficial veins to the deep veins, then the ulcer can be cured. While there is good evidence that such treatment will greatly reduce the risks of getting another leg ulcer, if the skin has been very damaged and the ulcer has healed with a lot of scarring, this area of the leg may remain vulnerable and a trivial knock or injury might cause another skin breakdown even though the vein abnormality has been completely eradicated. Number 7 -- How can we avoid leg ulcers? Well there are 3 things I would suggest. Firstly, if you are unfortunate enough to suffer a deep vein thrombosis (DVT), it should be treated promptly to limit the damage to the deep veins. Unfortunately, damage to the deep veins cannot be reliably reversed by surgery. So, prompt treatment with anticoagulants -- blood thinning medication -- reduces the extent of the clot and the damage to the deep veins. Secondly, if you have had a DVT, you should consider wearing good quality medical grade compression socks -- some studies suggest that doing so may reduce the risk of leg ulcers after a big DVT. Thirdly, if you have superficial vein reflux have it treated early to reduce the chances of progression to varicose eczema which is itself a warning sign that the skin is damaged and liable to ulceration. Now I hope you have found this useful. Don't forget to subscribe to keep up to date with the latest on veins. Thank you for watching my video.

JSM (27 дней назад)
Dealing with a leg ulcer due to ankle fracture repair basically trauma to my ankle. I been receiving treatment from wound care center and wearing compression socks for 5 months now. Soon I'll be going in for laser ablation procedure for a varicose vein that lies underneath my ulcer. Can't wait for this to be over. Its depressing and painful to go through. I wish anyone going through this all the best. Stay prayed up!!!

Having a HUGE ankle ulcer and around 23 medium & small ulcers, all on my left leg cuz of SCA. My docs say "It's fine, not infected & just keep changing it." I've been going through this for a year and a half. Tried everything, literally everything except the oxygen chamber. I'm running out of money to keep buying supplies & I'm getting really depressed. Haven't been able to walk outside for well over a year. I hate my life so much... smh

PS my father has this and thank God I caught it just before ulcerative stage. I've got him on green drink twice daily (1 cucumber, 1 celery, 1/2 lime). Order oregano essential oil, tea tree and clove from young living or doTERRA but DO NOT use oregano straight because it burns. Mix a solution of 1:4 essential oils and coconut oil. Coconut oil is antibiotic when I'm contact with skin. Save your own life cuz these asshole doctors damn sure won't.

Please listen to Barbara O'Neil of Misty mountain health retreat here on YouTube. Also order wheatgrass seeds from gotsprouts.com drink 2 oz shot -no more than that at a time- two or three times a day. Most importantly, put the pulp on your ulcer and wrap it with seran wrap as a pultice.. to much info to list here but there is a cure!! Hippocrates Health Institute is another exceptional source. Stay away from sugar, dairy, caffeine. Order leg pumps from Amazon.

I am on 2 years, and between Xeroform cases, Boil Ease creams, Tea Tree oil, bandages, Neosporin, sprays and tapes of all sorts, I've easily spent over $1,000 in 2018 so far. And does not heal. The pain is unbearable. I rather have my teeth extracted with a plier at my car mechanic's garage than this pain. No pain meds are strong enough. I might go over the wall to Mexico in search of someone in a cartel who can offer relief. Obviously, it's making me psychotic. The video affirms, but offers no solution to this suffering. A new wound opened next to the 9 inch one, and in less than a week has grown to an inch in width. Is there a cardiovascular in the USA that can help? Please no more Silverdiasol creams - they do zilch !

Thank you for this video. I wish I had watched it earlier. I had discolortion of skin but my skin doctor did not warn me about a vein circulatiin problem. Eventually this lead to ulcers on my foot and not leg. The duplex ultrasound showed reflux on both deep vein as well as superficial veins. Compression bandages helped the ulcers heal and now I wear compression stockings. Fortunately the ulcers have not returned.

Hello doctor, thanx for sharing this vdo. I suffered from DVT after my first pregnancy 9 years back and since last year im again suffering from vasculitis on my left leg with ulcers.......i did the pus swab test also ......how long will it take to heal? Shiukd i start wearing the stockings of veins now?will it help?
The VeinCare Centre (10 месяцев назад)
After a DVT, the vein circulation may be severely damaged. You should consult your own specialist for specific advice, but in general compression stockings do help. Please ensure that you are carefully measured and fitted and that there are contra-indications to wearing stockings in your case (eg artery disease or diabetes).

Thank you Dr. Well Explained, there is possible treatment for leg ulcers prepared using herbal and minerals extracts from Himalayas, clinical trials where done under the supervision of Qualified Medical Dermatologist, results recorded in 15 days for early condition and three to six months for chronic and severe conditions. Friends who are looking for leg ulcer treatment may consult your doctor to mail us a request asking us for clinical data to evaluate : reach us at : subhas.blr@gmail.com
Subhaskar reddy (1 год назад)
Well explained, I had a friend who was suffering from leg ulcer & vericose vein for 15 years, uses medical socks, it was painful to see him. I took up a study to find a remedy, after consulting several Ayurvedic experts and Sages for months deciphered herbi and mineral ingredients from Himalayas. The extract prepared can be consumed and tropically applied, lab checked for heavy metals, arsenic and microbial tests, has no side effect, after convincing few who had lost all hopes, succeeded in healing Severe Corn on the foot within weeks completely, Chronic Leg ulcers started reducing from 3 day disappeared within three months for few and for some due to there alcohol and smoking habbits healing process is slow. We want to help as many people possible, it costs negligible.

Can we wear compression socks over the ulcer? Or Do we need to wear them over the Varicose Veins? Thank You
The VeinCare Centre (1 год назад)
Thank you for this question.Yes, compression socks can be worn over an ulcer and they aid healing. See http://www.bsnmedical.co.uk/products/wound-care-vascular/category-product-search/vascular/compression-garments/jobstr-ulcercaretm.html Other compression garment manufacturers also produces socks designed to heal ulcers.

hello. I havd a neighbor wbo has ulcers all over her lowerlevs and complaims of vreat pain so much so that she sleeps sitting up. she said that this started about 9 months ago after a hospital where they over hydrated her with infused fluids. do you have any ideas what this is?
jean michel (1 год назад)
Elizabeth Gadus has your neighbour been to hospital yet? If not please tell her to go asap. A relative of mine was in the same situation, he couldn't sleep lying down and would sleep in a chair all the time. He was too stubborn to go to hospital and left it for months until he had ulcers on both legs.

Ive suffered from venous skin ulcers for awhile now, ive had multiple DVTs and countless surgeries to my veins since i also suffer from Factor V deficiency. Ive been doing a bit of research and im curios to know if an ulcer develops on the side of your foot would this fall into a different category? Being white and splotchy in color but painful at times. I currently see a cardiologist thats also my surgeon but he doesn't seem to know what else that could be causing this issue since all dopplers dont show any more signs vein issues. Not too sure who to turn to next and I would like some advice. Thank you in advance.

Thank you, The video was Extremely informative. My husband had his leg crushed as a teenager, the Drs chose to cast the compound fracture to Tibia/ Fibula they monitored the leg for gang green for 10 months. Since his first on set of the ulcers only started after he became disabled and unable to walk on his legs that his job as a warehouse and yard manager required him to do . My question is if one limb is effected by the ulcers is it a possibility that the other limb will be effected as well in time. Ever Thankful, J Wildonger

my mum has 2 large ulcers due to poor circulation she had an angioplasty which seems to have helped the blood flow. the ulcers are on either side of her ankle and you can see her bone through one. she is currently on maggot therapy but as she is on warfarin she has had 2 major bleeds which required an emergency call for an ambulance. I'm so worried she will lose her foot I just wish I could help her.

My father was in Coban compression wraps for 5 years-- the nurses were wrapping so tight he developed 2 infected unstageable ulcers at the calf... I have since taken over wrapping and am using 4 inch cotton conform wrap -- took me 20 days shy of a year to heal the ulcers.. now.. since I have been wrapping uniformly his leg has balanced-- I took opportunity to remove compression all together-- and his edema is under control... problem.. he complains of pins and needles to the level 10 at some times-- however other days no pain... is this just the capillarys coming back to life?-- he had severe stasis dermatitis-- however after a week the skin sloughed off to near normal-- still have dry skin issues -- I have him on B100 twice a day-- plenty water-- and only use coconut oil for moisture-- I keep his leg in a flannel sleeve( no compression) and a woolen sock on-- if I keep his limb warm he has comfort-- second question-- sheep skin therapy boots-- as I say-- heat and warm are his comfort... what do you think of sheep skin therapy boots-- I need to be able to apply graduated support from toes to just above ankle-- and can do his magic number ( around 15-20) via the velcro tabs...he is 82-- I also have him do at lest 5 min a day walking on the treadmill... need thoughts on sheepskin medical boots-- thank you so much -- he was dismissed from our Sask health care and handed to me-- infected ulcers and all-- I had to learn from utube compression therapy-- thank goodness for videos... I have tried juxa boot-- he gets shear-- tried all manner of compression stockings.. tourniquet effect-- and shear--- proper graduated wrapping with cotton did work however h has poor reaction to any synthetics-- and he seems as if he doesnt need compression anymore...well slight if any -- as for what he has-- I have asked for years-- venous insufficiency-- which covers a myriad of things... sigh.... poor health care here... boots? I can and will gladly send you pics and vids... bless you soul for sharing info via vids.. I think you saved his life...

is it possible to have a leg ulcer on the upper thigh? I noticed a blackish bump in July on my thigh. it's never gone away, and just last night, I noticed it now is open in the center. I'm kind of freaked out about it.
The VeinCare Centre (1 год назад)
We are sorry to hear of your distress. If you have an ulcer on your thigh, it is unlikely to be due to veins. Please seek medical advice from your own doctor or healthcare professional. Good luck.

Hi there, I had varicose  eczema for 16 yrs from 1996 to 2012  tried lots of creams and potions they never helped so I just put up with it.  I was diagnosed in may 2012 with rheumatoid arthritis, and was prescribed methotrexate. "The eczema totally vanished" however  other problems I have now are small kidneys which the renal and rhemo are watching "stage 3" Renal impairment. Could this have stemmed from the varicose eczema and also could the venous problem be "underlying" to this day even though my leg has totally cleared up? Thanking you in advance..:)
The VeinCare Centre (2 года назад)
I have no experience of the results of prednisilone with varicose eczema. However as varicose eczema is an inflammatory condition and as prednisilone is a powerful anti-inflammatory, it is possible that the response you have noted is connected. Thank you for sharing your experience.
Rose (2 года назад)
Thankyou for this information.. I was taking prednisolone  for a few months at first diagnosis, could that have rid me of this leg problem, because it was in 2012 when I started all this medication, that it totally disappeared. P.S. looking at this video really does look like what I had  same look same place etc....
The VeinCare Centre (2 года назад)
Thank you for sharing your experience. As far as I am aware, methotrexate does not help leg eczema due to vein problems. So, I think the initial diagnosis of varicose eczema may have been incorrect and that the eczema was caused by another problem.

hi, I started having some itching with a hard dark skin on the ankle joint , dont know if the itching is from an insect bite or venous stasis, now the skin got ruptured and started oozing with pain and edema, pain high on standing or putting weights . Sir, is turmeric helpful or neosporin ointment good, can u help me, thanks
Carla Jones (3 месяца назад)
what was your diagnosis?
The VeinCare Centre (2 года назад)
Thank you. We have no experience of using turmeric. Do you have any information on this? With regard to neosporin, in general we do not advise topical antimicrobials. It would be best to see your local specialist for a duplex scan and wound care by an experienced nurse.

In 4 years I have gone to Internists, neurologists (in case it might have helped - it did not), cardiologists, eczema and varicose "experts", cardio-vascular surgeons and several wound centers - and not in the last 2 years has anyone offered any advise not heard before. If you were Tricky Dick your problem would be solved. Clots need to be cleared to solve the stasis in the lower extremities. The best thing for the doctors is to treat your wound not the cause.

why is it,,, I have healed my own vienous ulcer that I had for 5/6 years it was horrific time for me,, I was under a specialist,, sue tickle for a long time and no one could get a hold on it,, I eventually found my own method and it healed my ulcer in just over a week,, it also cured all the infection without anti biotics,, I have tried to get support with this method to help make a new wound dressing but no one seems to want to help,, this method involves using a natural product from a tree,, I paid for preliminary research as it has not been thought up yet and is not formulated anywhere in the world,, this method must be very important but my NHS are no help,, mind you I wouldn't want someone to come along with a one time application and take away all the wound dressing profits either,, I want to develop this for all the people who suffer in the world not for pride or credit. what can I do

hello doctor  I also have the same problem in my left leg just above the ankle initially it was a small ingury but now it looks bigger i also have small problem in perforator vein my dr is saying that first we will treat the ulser without any surgery and then we will operate the perforater vein Will it work? Plz suggest Thanks
inderjeet singh dalwani (3 года назад)
+The VeinCare Centre thanks a lot doctor.
The VeinCare Centre (3 года назад)
+inderjeet singh dalwani Thank you for your question. Many specialists recommend compression therapy to heal ulcers before treating superficial vein reflux or perforator vein reflux. However, if the ulcer is very large, many specialists would advise skin grafting and definitive vein treatment at the same time. Both approaches are effective. As you will understand, the correct treatment for you depends on you particular circumstances.

Well me too having the same problem but my doctor is saying that first we will hell the ulsar and then the perforator vein. Will it work? Plz suggest as soon as possible Thanks
The VeinCare Centre (3 года назад)
+inderjeet Thank you for your question. Many specialists recommend compression therapy to heal ulcers before treating superficial vein reflux or perforator vein reflux. However, if the ulcer is very large, many specialists would advise skin grafting and definitive vein treatment at the same time. Both approaches are effective.

+Javier García Martín Thank you for your interesting article about the other causes of ulcers. Diabetes is an important cause of foot ulceration.

What if an ulcer is related to diabetes? Won't exercise and healthier dietary control.help re-build calve and leg muscles?
Max Headroom (3 года назад)
+The VeinCare Centre Hey your welcome Doc, thanks for the info ulcers
The VeinCare Centre (3 года назад)
+Max Headroom Good point! About 80% of leg ulcers are caused by vein disease. You are right - a minority are caused by diabetes. For these people, healthy life style, good nutrition and exercise are vitally important. Thank you for your contribution.

Meant to post also .... We have noticed no change if anything my wife says the ulcer looks larger.
The VeinCare Centre (3 года назад)
+Randy Magill I am very sorry to hear of your distress. If you are being treated with compression bandages and the problem is not resolving or if indeed it appears to be getting worse, then I suggest you are fully assessed by a vascular specialist. I am sorry I cannot be more specific. Good luck

I am suffering from leg ulcers and have been using compression bandages and hydro gel in which my doctor prescribed but it has been a month and we change the bandages daily because of drainage do you think a Una boot would work better for me?

hello The VeinCare Centre Thankyou  for such a clear explanation on leg ulcers. my mom had fracture of medialmalleolus around 10 yrs ago and since about 3 to 4 years she has developed pitting edema on the same leg (Rt.leg) and there are lots of visible capillaries. What is it likely of? is it DVT or what? What things should i do to heal that? please suggest ASAP.
Sangam Paudel (4 года назад)
thankyou so much +The VeinCare Centre 
The VeinCare Centre (4 года назад)
+Sangam Paudel Thank you for your feedback. I hope you will understand that we are unable to give specific medical advice on individual issues. However, from what you describe it is possible her problems are a result of a deep vein thrombosis. She needs to have a diagnostic duplex scan of the deep and superficial veins and then have her arterial pulses and Doppler pressure indices measured. Graduated compression therapy may appropriate. Good luck.

Varicose eczema canit be treated by alternative medicine, like naturopathy, homeopathy, ayurveda, yoga
The VeinCare Centre (4 года назад)
+Manoharan Thangavelu Not as far as I am aware.
The VeinCare Centre (4 года назад)
+Manoharan Thangavelu I suspect good diet is important in the healing process - fresh, un-processed and home cooked food with an abundance of green vegetables. I advise restricting sugar and alcohol and not smoking. Walking is a good exercise for the leg circulation. I am happy to receive further suggestions.
Manoharan Thangavelu (4 года назад)
Thanks, very nicely explained, pl tell about lifestyle, food to avoid
The VeinCare Centre (4 года назад)
+Manoharan Thangavelu Some people have found these approaches helpful with the symptoms but to deal with the underlying issues, a duplex scan is needed and if there is any superficial venous reflux this should be addressed.

for the past 3 three months i have  leg ulcer on right foot, inside ankle. it is flat with no hole,it seem like a burn, about 3 inches by 2 inches in size,  and it is always leaking out lots of watery substance, would it be wise if i dress the leg with a Medicopaste bandage with Calamine, which is a unna boot dressing?  
Evral Tatum-Mcfield (2 месяца назад)
Mine does not leak, but i use Silver Sulphadiazine Cream, and that stop it within 2 weeks apply in it, 2 times a day!!

my husband was diagnosed with diabetes about 2 years ago and now he is getting like some kind of leg sores they are very dry and getting bigger.
The VeinCare Centre (4 года назад)
+carmen zayas I am very sorry to hear about the distressing problems your husband is experiencing. I am unable to give your husband specific medical advice. I suggest your husband consults his diabetologist or dermatologist. These sores may not be related to veins and they may be caused by his diabetes.

3 year ulcer having heck of a time healing- any suggestions?
The VeinCare Centre (4 года назад)
Sorry to hear about your problem +diane-dt Truthful Suggest, you see a vascular surgeon and if your leg circulation is good (you have good artery pulses in your foot) you try a Jobst Ulcercare stocking http://www.brightlifedirect.com/ Hope that helps

For the last 2 months I have 2 leg ulcers on the inside of my ankle.  They are not large or that deep.  They seemed to have scabbed over but there is still a small crater where the wound is.  What are your thoughts on taking "Nattokinase" to help with circulation?  I have heard some great things about this.  Currently, my dermatologist has me applying antibiotic cream to the wound and bandaging it 2x per day.  There are times there is no pain and times when it constantly hurts, especially at night.  Just looking at it, it doesn't look bad.  2 fairly small crater like scrapes, but it's very aggrivating that it's taking this long to heal.
bigconan (4 года назад)
The dr. I was seeing wanted me to wear compression stockings.  I simply will not go around with stocks on.  I am an avid bodybuilder and will not be seen wearing stockings.  the wounds are pretty much healed.  I still put this stuff on called xenox or something like that.  And I use an ace bandage.  it's still a little bit tender.  But its not longer scabbed but has a white coating over the wounds.  
The VeinCare Centre (4 года назад)
Thank you +bigconan  for watching and for posting your comments. I am really sorry to hear about your problem. I don't have any personal experience with "Nattokinase" but I would be interested to hear how you get on with it. Please keep me posted with your experience.

I'm dealing with a leg ulcer now; caused by varicose veins. It's chronic. It is life-changing, and often depressing and worrisome. I wish I'd had this information years ago. I've had varicose veins in my right leg for years, and had signs of the leg ulcer developing for more than 2 years, but did not know what it was.  Thanks...

Pigment changes are clue. Please do not scratch any area in or around the wound. I dig into my skin and not $1,000 offer from any stranger could stop me from scratching until I bleed. When I do, new wounds open up. Stop the dairy intake - all dairy, including Pizza, in-your-coffee, or yogurt and cheeses or nitrate-bloated dried meats. Stop ! I did not listen. I stuffed my face with everything dairy, and stopped completely in April 2018. Since then, of the 5 incredibly different pains I endured for 3 years before the wound opened, 3 pain types have ended since I went AWOL on dairy: Cramping, porcupine painful pings and scaling, and my cholesterol is down from 300 to 220 in 5 months without Lipitor or any statin or aspirin. I still weigh 174. Only my belly has gone and so are the spasms in my legs. Stop the arsenal of dairy-riddled foods. Stop! Stop Corn Syrup and foods containing BHTs. Stop today.

Thank you for your comment. I hope you will understand that I cannot comment specifically on your sister's medical condition. She should discuss her problem with the doctors looking after her in the light of the information provided by her duplex scan. I wish her well.
