Arterial ulcers, a type of wound often associated with inadequate blood flow, present a significant challenge in wound care. These ulcers, also known as ischemic ulcers, are typically caused by poor circulation and can be difficult to heal without specialized care. Understanding the symptoms and seeking timely treatment are crucial steps towards effective healing.

Recognizing the Symptoms of Arterial Ulcers

Symptoms of arterial ulcers include:

  • Wounds typically located on the feet and lower legs.
  • Pain, often severe, which might worsen with elevation.
  • Skin around the ulcer appearing shiny, tight, and may be pale or bluish.
  • Reduced hair growth on the affected limb.
  • Slow healing wounds that may not respond to conventional treatments.
