Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Infected ulcer. Close-up of an infected ulcer on the leg of an 85-year-old man. Leg ulcers are open sores that fail to heal, due to poor blood supply. In this case bacteria have infected the skin causing it to become inflamed (red area). Dead infection-fighting white blood cells have accumulated in the wound as pus (yellow). Blood has clotted over part of the ulcer causing a scab (black). Treatment includes antibiotics and dressing the ulcer to prevent further infection.
