Skin ulcers look like round open sores with the outer border raised and thick. There may be discoloration, redness, swelling, and an altered skin texture.
Ulcers should be treated swiftly, as they can devolve into infection. Even mild skin ulcers left untreated can get infected and spread to the whole body.
Skin ulcer treatment involves healing the wound, reducing pain and treating any infection before it spreads. The following methods are effective:
Antibiotics (oral drugs or ointment for skin ulcers)
Surgery (skin graft)
If the wound does not heal within 2-3 weeks, it is a skin ulcer and must be treated immediately so as to prevent infection.
