Healing ulcer. View of an ulcer on the leg of a 75 year old woman. This ulcer is in the process of healing. The impressions of sterile dressings can be seen on the skin around the ulcer. This ulcer formed from a haematoma (collection of blood) following a blow to the leg. Ulcers such as this should be sterilised, dressed and left to heal. If they are infected, antibiotics should be taken to kill the bacteria.
