Diabetic Ulcers are caused by reduced skin moisture, dulled surface sensitivity and insufficient circulation, and one of the skin issues diabetics battle with on a constant basis Dry, malnourished skin on the lower legs and feet can easily crack or tear, providing an entry point for bacteria. Many diabetes patients often experience neuropathy (lasting numbness) in their feet and, therefore, skin cracks or abrasions often go unnoticed and unattended. Wounds quickly worsen, becoming inflamed, infected and ulcerated.
Diabetic ulcers appear as red, swollen, slow-healing open sores. Signs of an infected or more severe ulcer are warmth surrounding the sore, a large or deep break in the skin, a moist pus-filled wound, red streaking away from the wound, progressive numbness of the feet, or a fever. Ulcers most often develop on the leg, the ball of the foot, the bottom of the big toe, or on the sides of the foot.
Treating diabetic ulcers requires diligent cleaning of the feet throughout the healing process. In addition, it is important to keep the feet dry, free from unnecessary irritation, such as restrictive footwear, and elevated in order to decrease swelling. Terrasil Wound Care guards against bacterial infection while promoting healing and reducing discomfort at the wound site.
