I was diagnosed with eczema on my ankles and was given all creams nothing worked. Went pack to my GP and an intern said I have a Venus Stasis Ulcer. Put legs up wear compression stockings. After awhile an open wound burst on my right ankle. My medical doctor, took a culture lost the culture and the wound healed. Kept on going back to GP they kept saying wear compression stockings. Two years ago I finally went to a Vascular Doc. He diagnosed and said I had Venus Insuffiency which can lead to ulcerations. No meds just compression stockings. Took a Doppler. Everything ok. Recently I would say about two months now the ulcerations have been getting worse. An adhesion burst leaving me with an open wound. The doctor put an unna boot on me with zinc oxide for one week. Wound still not healed suggested a bandaide and ace. Meds given 300mgs of Gabapentin. The pain is excruciating, a constant throbbing. The meds not doing anything. I'm going for a second opinion. No relief in site. I just turned 70 this week. I'm very energetic and work in a school. Most of my jobs have been always on foot. I'm not used to sitting. Be cautious with people giving home remedies. Someone suggested raw honey and baking soda on the raw wound. That was a burning beyond. My only relief is soaking in warm water, then ice pack wrap. Mousturize red scaly shiny skin with Pure Coconut oil. I'm at my wits end. The pain is so intense and I have to wait for second opinion on 28th of November. Any suggestions and prayers would be helpful. Thank you.
