Dr Then treats an extensive number of patients with leg ulcers which may or may not be painful. There may be swelling, redness, dry and scaly skin, brown discoloration or itchy rashes associated with an ulcer. A leg ulcer is an area that has lost its covering layer of skin so that the tissues underneath the skin are exposed. It begins a result of trauma or an injury to the skin or may appear spontaneously. Common causes include venous insufficiency, peripheral arterial disease and diabetes. Ulcers that are not healing despite appropriate dressings should be assessed by Dr Then, your vascular surgeon to identify and treat the underlying cause.
