Treatments in Madrid for Ulcers

There are several types of ulcers, pressure, ischemic and venous.

Venous ulcers:

Also called stasis, they are superficial, usually have an irregular shape, have a moist granulation bed, with irregular edges and are usually accompanied by dermatitis. The wound is usually painful to the touch, even more so if it is infected, and the pain decreases considerably when the patient raises the lower limb. Normally these patients present hyperpigmentation below the knee and the treatment and evolution of this type of ulcers is usually slow.

This type of ulcer requires dressings to control exudate and moisture balance, keeping the perilesional skin at optimal humidity, frequently removing devitalized tissue and continuous evaluation of the ulcer using compression stockings.

In addition to all this, the most important thing is the daily work of the family members following the steps day by day and without losing hope that, although slowly, they can end up healing.

Pressure ulcer

A pressure ulcer is one that suffers continuous pressure either from footwear or from the bone structures of the foot, in this case. They usually appear in the ball of the foot, heel and metatarsal area.
These ulcers can become complicated and cause infection, hyperkeratosis, and beneath the hyperkeratosis the ulcer is usually hidden.

Neuro ischemic ulcer

In this case, neuro-ischemic ulcers present with a component of severe ischemia, necrotic tissue, and usually require surgical debridement in many cases. They can be treated with iruxol, (ointment used for cleaning and removing necrotic tissues.)
