Digital Ulcers

Digital Ulcers are commonly associated with Scleroderma, a chronic autoimmune disorder that occurs when the body produces too much collagen. With too much collagen, the skin tightens and thickens, and blood vessel walls begin to close in. In cases of systemic (generalized) scleroderma, internal organs become damaged.

Digital ulcers (Raynaud's phenomenon) are a common side side effect of Scleroderma. When are exposed to cold temperatures, the finger's small blood vessels constrict and block blood flow. The affected skin feels numb and painful, and shows either a red, white or blue discoloration. If circulation issues persist, the tissue at the tips of the fingers weakens, breaks down and forms a small ulcer. With compromised circulation, digital ulcers can't receive the nutrients and infection-fighting white blood cells that they need to heal.

Treating digital ulcers requires diligent cleaning throughout the healing process. Terrasil Wound Care guards against bacterial infection while promoting healing and calming soreness at the wound site.
