Recognize the Disease that Causes Ulcers and How to Overcome It

Ulcers are diseases that occur on the skin or mucous membranes, which are accompanied by tissue erosion. These disgusting looking ulcers generally appear on the skin repeatedly and healing takes a long time. Ulcers do not arise just like that, but are influenced by several diseases such as scabies, diabetes mellitus, impetigo, herpes, and so forth. The shape of the ulcer varies, some are like big or small circles. Its appearance can be anywhere, such as legs, lips, head, stomach, and so on. Ulcers can cause extraordinary itching. Ulcer conditions will get worse if scratched, and there are even ulcers that secrete blood or pus too, you know. Here are some diseases that can cause ulcers, including:
  • Impetigo

  • Impetigo is a highly contagious skin infection that can cause ulcers (sores) and blisters. This disease is divided into two types, namely non bullous impetigo and bullous impetigo. Impetigo usually attacks children more often, but this disease can affect anyone. This infection tends to disappear and heal by itself within two to three weeks. The cause of this disease is when the skin is infected with the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pyogenes. The bacteria can infect the skin with two events, namely through healthy skin, such as wounds, insect bites or other injuries. And through damaged skin caused by lice, scabies or eczema. Usually, the doctor will provide primary treatments such as antibiotic cream or antibiotic tablets, this drug should be used for about one week.
  • Diabetes mellitus

  • Many diabetics have ulcers in the legs. This is caused by very high blood sugar levels, which makes arteries stiff and blood vessels narrow. This narrowing can block the flow of blood and make oxygen and some important nutrients needed to help heal injured wounds. In diabetics, ulcers in the legs are a common complication of a poorly controlled condition. If you have ulcers caused by diabetes, see a doctor immediately. To reduce the risk of this ulcer, you are advised to wash your feet every day, keep your toenails clean and cut them, keep your feet dry, change your socks as often as possible, and wear the right shoes that fit your feet.
  • Leg Vein Ulcers

  • These ulcers occur in damaged skin tissue. Usually more often attacks women at the age of 80 years. Venous leg ulcers are often found above the ankles. This disease is caused by an increase in blood pressure in the arteries of the lower leg. This causes swelling, thickening, and damage to the skin. The damaged skin eventually becomes ulcers. There are several ways that are usually recommended by doctors to treat leg vein ulcers, including through the administration of antibiotics, hyperbaric oxygen, to surgery to correct pressure in the blood vessels. Stop smoking because the chemicals in cigarettes can interfere with skin healing.
  • Stomach ulcers (stomach ulcers)

  • One of the ulcers that you cannot see is ulcers in the stomach or stomach ulcers. Usually people who have stomach ulcers will feel pain in their stomach. Ulcers in the stomach are the same as canker sores that often occur in the mouth. The appearance of these ulcers can be caused by high levels of stomach acid, H. pylori bacterial infections, long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen), as well as the use of several steroid drugs and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) ) used to treat depression.
Ulcers can interfere with your appearance. Itching that never stops can also make you tired of scratching it. We recommend that you immediately consult a doctor to get the right treatment. Usually the doctor will prescribe antibiotics that are applied to the skin or taken if there is a possibility of a bacterial infection.
