Venous leg ulcers
Venous leg ulceration is almost always preceded by skin changes of lipodermatosclerosis. Your GP will help you recognize this problem and advise on referral to a vascular specialist for further tests and treatment.
In people who have troublesome varicose veins causing skin damage as well as problems following deep vein thrombosis, the best method of treatment is to start with graduated elastic medical compression stockings.
Graduated elastic medical compression stockings should also be worn if you have had a previous leg ulcer, which will help prevent another one forming.
Mölnlycke Health Care offers a range of dressings for compression, such as Setopress, Elset and Elset 'S'.
