What are Open Sores & Ulcers?
When we typically think of open sores and ulcers, we may not automatically think about them affecting our legs. These open wounds tend to ooze and bleed, and typically have trouble healing without medical attention. Sores and ulcers may be caused by a variety of conditions, but it's important to keep in mind that when coupled with other symptoms like skin discoloration and varicose veins, these wounds may indicate that your veins are pumping blood through your body the way they should.
What Causes Open Sores & Ulcers?
Open sores and ulcers are small, oozing wounds that won't quite heal on their own and often need medical attention to go away completely. These open wounds are typically associated with vein conditions that cause blood to pool in the veins and cause pressure on the legs that the legs are not used to. Patients who are prone to getting these sores and ulcers are also prone to swelling and edema and may have a history of obesity or diabetes. If you are starting to see more open sores and ulcers on your legs, we encourage you to see one of our vein specialists for diagnostic testing to prevent an underlying vein condition from worsening.
How Much do Treatments for Open Sores & Ulcers Cost?
The cost of your treatment for open sores and ulcers will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage. To get a better idea of how much your treatment for open sores and ulcers will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our specialists.
