Prevention

Once the ulcer is healed, it does not mean that the problems are over.Although the skin might be intact, the underlying problem with the veins remains and due precaution must be taken to prevent ulcer from recurring:
  1. Wear compression stockings (or bandages in a few severe cases) at all times during the day.
  2. Elevate the legs whenever possible.
  3. Keep the skin in good condition by using plenty of moisturising cream to prevent dryness.
  4. Weight loss, fresh fruit, exercise and stopping smoking are also vital to help heal ulcer as well as for your general health.
