What are Open Sores & Ulcers?
Open sores and ulcers on the legs are areas of the leg that have not been able to heal completely and tend to ooze and bleed. They present a heightened risk of infection due to their inability to fully heal. These sores can be caused by a variety of conditions but frequently are venous in nature. When coupled with skin discoloration, a rash on the legs, and varicose veins, these open sores and ulcers can indicate that your body is not circulating blood the way it should.
What Causes Open Sores & Ulcers?
Open sores on the leg are frequently caused by venous ulcers. These ulcers occur when the veins in your legs do not circulate blood back to your heart as efficiently as they should. These inefficiencies cause blood to back up in the veins which builds up pressure. If they remain untreated, the increased pressure and excess fluid can cause an open sore to form, which has a high chance of becoming infected.
Diabetes and obesity increase your chances of developing open sores and ulcers on your legs. If you have open sores or ulcers on your legs, we encourage you to see one of our vein specialists for diagnostic testing as soon as possible to prevent an underlying condition from worsening
How Much Does Treatment 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 will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our doctors.
