varicose ulcer, open wound on the ankle. Tried many different types of medication but nothing seems to help. What do you suggest and who should I see?
Treatment of an ulcer that is a result of vein disease is best treated with compression of the leg to decrease swelling, as well as topical wound treatment. If the wound has been present for a while without healing or you have recurrent wounds, I recommend you go to see a certified wound specialist for assessment.
