The types of trophic ulcers are most often isolated for the reasons of their occurrence, that is, for the initial diseases: venous, atherosclerotic, diabetic, neurotrophic, hypertensive and infectious. Let's try to briefly describe each of the types.
Venous ulcers are a complication of varicose veins in violation of the blood supply to the lower extremities. Most often, lesions occur on the lower parts of the inner surface of the legs. The severity and cramps progress to the stage of itching and the formation of a "mesh" of veins. Further, the skin becomes denser, smoothed, and shines. The next unpleasant moment is the formation of whitish clamps. Start treatment urgently! After all, literally in a few days an ulcer forms on the skin, which is prone to progression and can lead to sad consequences.
Atherosclerotic ulcers are a consequence of ischemia of the soft tissues of the lower leg. After all, obliterating atherosclerosis affects the arteries. Tight shoes or hypothermia can cause the formation of a trophic ulcer on the foot. This is a semicircular purulent fossa. The patient has cold feet, pains at night, it is difficult to climb stairs - more often these are elderly people.
