Does an ulcer need to be treated professionally?

Yes, ulcer symptoms need immediate professional treatment. They deteriorate without the proper foot care and can easily develop serious infections that could lead to an amputation if they get out of hand. Appropriate ulcer treatment means seeing an experienced podiatrist like Dr. Cynthia Oberholtzer-Classen so the wound can be evaluated and managed before it becomes worse.

In fact, if you have diabetes, you should be seeking professional help or urgent care as soon as you notice any of the earliest symptoms of a wound. Spots of redness, swelling, small cuts, blisters, or even bleeding could signal the start of an ulcer. Don’t let the problem progress. Contact Podiatry Associates, P.C. in Parker, Castle Pines, or Cherry Creek, CO for an appointment the moment you notice a problem. We now offer special urgent care hours on weeknights and on Saturdays so that you get the wound care you need when you need it. Call (303) 805-5156 to make your appointment with us.
