Foot and Leg Ulcers
Foot and Leg Ulcers
Foot and Leg Ulcers are breaks in the skin most often attributed to conditions causing compromised circulation, such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease. With decreased blood flow, moisture and nutrients, the skin can easily crack or tear, providing an entry point for bacteria. Wounds quickly worsen, becoming inflamed, infected and ulcerated.
Foot and leg ulcers appear as red, swollen, slow-healing open wounds. Signs of an infected or more severe sore are warmth surrounding the ulcer, 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 foot and leg 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.
