What Is Causing The Ulcer On My Legs Or Feet?

An ulcer or sore, on both the legs and feet are common.  There are many causes for these, some of which you may know.  Regardless of the cause, all ulcers should have an expert evaluation, to provide the best treatment options and help to prevent infection.

Causes of Ulcerations:

⦁ Vascular insuffiency
⦁ Trauma
⦁ Lymphedema
⦁ Pressure
⦁ Inflammatory disease (ie. Lupus, Scleroderma, other types of arthritis)
⦁ Other


⦁ Debridement
⦁ Creams and ointments
⦁ Total Contact Cast or other offloading
⦁ Unna Boot(soft cast) and other compression dressings
⦁ Grafts
⦁ Other

New treatment options for an ulcer have helped to increase healing, decrease infection, and decrease amputations. Firstly, all unhealthy tissue must be removed from the wound. After this, a graft from either humans or animals can be applied.  This helps to stimulate wound healing. Once the wound is healed, the condition causing the ulcer must be managed to prevent it from reoccurring.

Some ulcers in the legs can even be related to a cancerous condition called Squamous Cell Carcinoma.  These are referred to as Marjolin’s ulcers.  So don’t let your ulcers get the best of you and come in to Hollowbrook Foot Specialists today for an examination! We now have Saturday and evening hours, give us a call at (845) 298-9074 for your preferred appointment.

You will not find a better podiatrist than Dr. Schlam. I have been seeing him for over twenty years and he has been a godsend for my foot pain. If only I could give six stars...
