Chronic Ulcers

Chronic ulcers are persistent wounds or sores that fail to heal within a reasonable time frame, typically lasting for more than four weeks. These ulcers are often located on the skin, but they can also occur in the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal tract, such as in peptic ulcers, or in the genital or oral mucosa.


Chronic ulcers can be caused by a range of factors, including poor blood flow, underlying medical conditions like diabetes, infections, or autoimmune diseases, as well as lifestyle choices like smoking and poor nutrition. Symptoms of chronic ulcers may include pain, redness, inflammation, and discharge.


Treatment for chronic ulcers may depend on the underlying cause, but often involves addressing any contributing factors, such as managing underlying medical conditions or improving blood flow. Additionally, topical and oral medications, dressings, and in some cases, surgery, may be used to promote healing and prevent infection.


Preventing chronic ulcers involves maintaining a healthy lifestyle, addressing any underlying medical conditions, and avoiding behaviours that increase the risk of developing ulcers, such as smoking or consuming excessive alcohol.
