What are Venous Leg Ulcers?
Venous leg ulcer is a chronic (long-lasting) ulcer (damage or break of the skin) of the lower part of the leg, usually the inside part, just above the ankle. By far, the majority of leg ulcers are venous in nature.
The skin around the ulcer may be discoloured and hardened. When infected it may also produce a foul-smelling discharge
