Wound Care Treatment Concept
The way we treat a venous ulcer is the same way we treat varicose veins. It is helpful to imagine that your skin is dry wall, and an underlying leaking pipe is causing the dry wall to rot. The damaged dry wall will eventually crumble and maybe even develop an open hole. Patching the dry wall may make the wall look okay… for a little while at least. But with time, the wall will get wet again and you will be left with another hole! So before patching the wall, it’s really important to fix the leaking pipe. An unhealthy vein is very much like a leaking pipe and thus, the treatment of this vein is the first step in healing a venous stasis ulcer.
