Skin Ulcers Stack

General Health 418 SupplementDoctor
Skin ulcer refers to an open wound on the skin that may be caused by a health problem such as infection, pressure sore, or by vein problems. This may be caused by poor blood circulation from the legs, such as venous insufficiency. Skin ulcers may appear as open craters, often round, with layers of skin that have eroded. The skin may be red, swollen, and tender and patients may feel pain while fluid may ooze from the ulcer site. Soothe and heal the sores on your skin for more comfort and fewer infections. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
