Leg ulcers are basically formed when there is a sudden or eventual break in the cell layer of the skin. There are many symptoms for a leg ulcer, including severe pain on the leg, discoloration on the affected area and oedema on the ankles. Individuals suffering from a leg ulcer also suffer from excessive scratching on the affected area. Diabetes is the biggest cause of leg ulcer, followed by poor circulation and chronic inflammatory disorders.
Are there any home remedies?
Interestingly there are some remedies that you can implement to control the spread of the ulcer after you start getting the symptoms. Some of the home remedies to limit the affect are:
- Rosemary and Gingko Bilabo: Gingko Bilabo and Rosemary ensure the smooth functioning of the circulatory system, and make sure that blood reaches all the corners without any hassles. This speeds up the healing process for a leg ulcer.
- Yarrow: Yarrow is another effective remedy to control the spread of a leg ulcer within the comforts of your home. Yarrow helps dilate the blood vessels, which in turn largely increase the flow of blood to the area affected by the ulcer.
