TREATMENT FOR VARICOSE ULCERS

Varicose ulcers are open wounds that are very difficult to heal. They are formed as a complication of Venous Insufficiency or extreme problems of poor circulation. Varicose ulcers are also known as leg sores, and besides being very painful, these ulcers can also cause several health complications.

The main cause of varicose ulcers is the malfunction of the veins. When this happens, the blood does not reach the feet or is not returned correctly, causing suffocation in the lower organs. As a result, the skin dries and opens.

The risks of Varicose Ulcers are many, from hemorrhages and severe infections due to lack of skin protection, to complete necropsy that can end in amputations of the lower limbs. Similarly, the quality of life is affected since the patient can experience deep pain and difficulty walking.
