I am addressing this post particularly to Amanda and others who suffer from ulcers. My ulcers are as a result of Stasis Dermatitis which is a result of compromised venous return in my legs. I wear thigh high compression stockings every day and still I have a new ulcer just starting. They are not as bad as digital ulcers (which I have also had) but they are painful and persistant and take a very long time to heal.
I have just been reading a Facebook post from a young lady named Kirstin in NZ who has very serious ulcers on her arms. She has been diagnosed with Sclero for at least 5 years I think but in the last year or so she had had these terrible ulcers.
In the past few days somebody from Australia has sent her some samples of a product called AMD Foam. I have googled it and it seems to have a good basis, being similar to other products whch I have had some luck with.
I wonder if anybody else on the Forums has had any experience with this type of dressing. I have an appointment at the Hospital Ulcer Clinic next week and I will ask, but I suspect that I will be told it is not available here. I suspect this because why did it take somebody in Australia to send Kirstin this dressing when she has been in such a terrible state for so long.
Looking forward to hearing if anybody else knows about this.
