I have this Ulcer on my right leg., (about 6cm in diameter). Being a tropical ulcer, it weeps and defuses bad odor where ever I went., Thus making it harder for me to travel in public vehicles.., it's also very painful and caused inflammation to my right leg, that walking short distance is avoided.., into the third week of this misery a good friend of mine came for a visit and saw me in this misery., that friend suggested using Coconut Activated Charcoal therapy., and he advised me how to build a simple Charcoal Kiln and process the Activated Charcoal,, now I'm on this therapy and I'm satisfied with the results.., the oozing had stop and almost 95% of the odour is gone,, currently I'm on the mend, after 3 days of consumption and sprinkling the the charcoal onto the ulcer.
One of the best remedies to heal dangerous leg ulcers happens to be activated charcoal. Sprinkling activated charcoal (mixed with water) directly onto an ulcer will start the healing process immediately.

My companion had a very bad ulcerated leg, we believe the cauce was from a fall that damaged his ankle, resulting in a plate and several screws years ago. It happened so fast at a time when he very busy having a large barn being constructed. His calf swelled to 2-3 times normal size in a day, and the skin became open and raw, about the size of a tennis ball. We couldn't get in to see our naturopath until the next day, so we found info on the internet about charcoal/flax poultice.
I was covering a large area, so I took 16'' x12" piece of clean cotton sheet, mixed 1/3 cup food grade activated charcoal with 1/2 cup ground flax seed and enough water for paste that you can spread on the cotton cloth. I would take that and wrap it around his calf. Then wrap saran wrap around that, and then wrap an ace bandage around that and pin it on for the night, 8 hours. You don't want it exposed to air, or it dries out. It takes the pain away in about 20 min. You can do it 3 times daily, but leave time to air out. And Keep the area Very clean, spray peroxide often.
We did this daily for 5-6 months. At first it drained liquid out, a LOT of liquid out. After about 4 months he showed his Dr. They panicked, did a lot of tests, nuclear bone scan and others, sent him to specialist. That Dr. came in looked at the calf, felt the leg, went back out checked tests, came back in, felt the leg for 10 min. checking for temp. We told him what we we're doing, he said, "did a lot of stuff drain out?" I said, "oh ya", he said the leg has no infection or problem he could find. After a total of 5 months we stopped the wraps, and the skin started peeling off, layer after layer... And every so often it gets to acting up, and he'll do another poultice. For the most part he only had poultice on at night.
I used the charcoal early on in the process of healing my leg sores. It did clean them up very nicely and then I was able to go on to things like the tamanu oil to stimulate cell growth.
After using very strong corticosteroid on my infected leg ulcers, my skin became thin and easily damaged, not to mention, it is more prone to infection (impetigo). I started applying fresh aloe vera gel from a cut leaf and I see it slowly regenerates.
Baby Aspirin for Diabetic Leg Ulcers
In perimenopause, I'd become pre-diabetic, with fasting blood sugar hovering in the 110 - 115 range, and developed sores on the skin around both ankles that wouldn't heal. I read somewhere that baby aspirin would help the sores go away, only one 81mg dose a day (too much is counter-productive).
Within days, the ulcers started healing, and now a month later, they're completely gone, no trace!
I have a new leg uler which developed after a bleed. It is on my interior ankle. Extremely painful. Can feel the swelling where the damage was done. I was told of a method using bread, bicarbonate of soda on the bread and water which makes the paste bubble. Does anyone know of this method. Surelly there is some native bush remedy out there. Indigenous people have cures for all their needs which they have used for years. Modern wound clinics just put on a bandage and say see you nexst week. One year later you are still doing the same thing.

Do not use Medical Doctors (MDs) if you have a leg ulcer. In my experience, MDs do not know how to heal leg ulcers.
At age 70 my father was bitten by a dog, and subsequently developed a leg ulcer that never healed. He had access to free health care, and was able to see an MD, or an RN, once a week, and every week, but the MDs were very little or no help.
He didn't have any other health issues.
They did dress that wound every week, however that ulcer was still an open wound at age 80 when he passed away.
Some years ago I was given a radical idea to try. At the time I didn't take any notes etc but it worked! I had 5 cellulitis ulcers on one leg and I was told to drink 1/4 cup of Colloidal Silver every 5 hours and spray my leg frequently with same. To do it over a 24 hour period. I did it and within 10 days I had only had the original ulcer left. Which hasn't been oozy for years.
So in that time frame, I lost 4 ulcers that have never returned. In 2017, one of my 2 specialists told me to use potassium permanganate ( aka Condy's Crystals ) to wash my legs daily and use the amount of crystals that would barely fit on the edge of a matchstick... He told me it kills sepsis and pseudomonas. Other Dr was delighted and told me that before the arrival of penicillin, doctors used Condy's Crystals as a wash for ulcers.
I have used Colloidal Silver to disinfect leg ulcers with a spray, use one or twice daily. Use Serreptase once or twice a day of 40,000 to 80,000. This will close the emerging ulcers and established ulcers. A white cream made with colloidal silver for dressing the leg ulcers and surrounding the ulcers will heal these wounds.
The open ulcer in the leg. The very best treatment is to mix curmin, baking soda and coconut oil. Any amount will do. Apply to affected area by using cotton and leave it overnight wearing socks. My cousin had this major problem for 10 years. I went to Africa and did the treatment for her. Almost 1 year now, no problem.
She used to have it worse during rainy season in Africa but thanks to GOD ALMIGHTY, no problem. Just make it like paste. I pray that GOD cures all human beings, regardless of color, creed, or race. GOD Bless you all!!!
My 80 year old mother had horrible looking sores on her legs. She asked me to pick up some everclear.(190 Proof). I was skeptical but she had heard of it somewhere and within two days her legs And foot looked better than they had for months and it did not BURN!!?? We just poured it over her legs first then we patted with washrag. I was amazed but it worked.

I'm surprised that, for ulcers, no one has recommended any herbs. If I had an ulcer, I would take the advice of Jethro Kloss (born in Wisconsin, in 1863), the author of "Back to Eden". He was a herbalist and healer who amassed a great deal of knowledge on Nature's many resources. On ulcers, he said the followings:
A light diet is necessary; the food must be well-digested. The bowels must move 2 or 3 times a day; use laxative herbs and high enemas. Steep one teaspoonful of Golden Seal and one-half teaspoonful Myrrh in a pint of boiling water. This solution is excellent for cleansing washes and dressings. Thoroughly wash the ulcer, using this solution as a cleansing wash. Internally, take a tablespoonful of this, 6 times a day. Dress the ulcer, by mixing together 2 teaspoonful of powdered Golden Seal and 1 teaspoonful of Myrrh, and by sprinkling it on the ulcer, after it has been thoroughly washed. Bandage loosely with bandaging. Internally, take any one of the following herbs. Or use 2 or 3 of the following herbs, mixing the equal parts thoroughly, and using a heaping teaspoonful to a cup of boiling water; strain and drink 4 cups a day, one an hour before each meal, and one upon retiring. Bayberry, Golden Seal, Ragwort, Lady's Slipper, Chickweed, Sage, Wood Sanicle, Slippery Elm, Bogbean, Ground Ivy, Bittersweet, Agrimony, and Raspberry Leaves.
Do NOT use honey for skin ulcers - despite the claims that bacteria can not grow in honey, using it for a leg ulcer gave me a horrendous infection that swelled my legs to the size of telegraph poles, after which I lost all of the skin below my knee. Two years later the original leg ulcer still hasn't healed. Honey can apparently carry heat resistant spores for some really nasty diseases!
My father had a large leg ulcer which he had for some years. I bought him some manuka honey which he put on the ulcer everyday. It completely cured the ulcer and has left no trace of a scar. This took 6 months.
