Case 5: Varicose ulcer/Venous ulcer - Medical treatment information

Brief description - Wound(s) that are thought to appear due to improper functioning of venous valves, venous ulcers are alone 70-90% of all the leg ulcers.

Cause - Exact cause of varicose ulcer is unclear

The Ayurveda way of diagnosis: We can appreciate clear evidence of food habit(s) and physical habit(s), viz: use of food articles that are unhealthy; either as a single item and in combination with articles as well (Viruddha). Long hours of standing can be one of the reasons

Prevention - Compression stockings; which can prevent the new ulcers from occurrence

Treatment
