Ulcers, which are open sores in the skin, occur when the external layers of the skin are wounded and the much deeper tissues end up being exposed. Ulcers are frequently seen in patients living with diabetes, neuropathy or vascular disease. Open injuries can place patients at increased risk of developing infection in the skin and bone. The signs and symptoms of ulcers may include drain, odor or red, inflamed, thick tissue. Pain might or may not exist. Other advanced imaging research studies might be purchased to examine for vascular disease, which may affect a patient's ability to heal the injury. In serious cases that entail comprehensive infection or are slow to recover, surgery or other advanced wound treatment therapies may be required.
