Leg ulcer is practically a sore that develops on the inside of the leg, right above the ankle, the affected leg showing signs of itching, pain and swelling. Hardened or discolored skin can also appear around the ulcer, as it is a leg skin breakage, most commonly caused by injuries, that permits air, thus any possible bacteria, to permeate the underlying tissue.

If you experience these symptoms, be sure to seek professional advice and maybe consider undergoing the effective and non-surgical leg ulcer Platelet Rich Plasma treatment in Northampton and Banbury.
