I did not know what listing to find this under in EC; however, I wrestled with a leak in my leg before and won. I had a leak once before that lasted on and off for a few years. It would start running whenever I had water retention. The sore never really closed. It only sealed with a thin skin coating. When my leg would swell, it would break open and continuously drain again. Then one day when it was not leaking, I applied Oregano oil on it. After a few day of applying and taking Oregano oil the thin scab dried up and real skin covered it praise the Lord.
What I want to share with you is how I dealt with a leg leak that was in the process of draining. About 2 weeks ago, while I was about to go into the subway, somehow I hit just above my ankle up again the lifted cement as I went down the steps. It was not until the next day that I realized my leg was leaking. I put disinfectant on it. However, the draining continued. So what I did this time was plugged it in with Bentonite Clay and wrapped it, left it on all night and washed it off in the morning. The problem I ran into with that is when the clay came off, a slow leak started. So I went to the kitchen and put a little honey on and around it. The next day the leak had stopped, but the spot still had a little soreness. Therefore, I open a capsule of oregano oil and applied it a few days. Now the leak has stopped, plus the leg is healed under the wound, "isn't that wonderful! "
Sorry about your foot ulcer.
> my Dr. at the VA diagnosed me with foot ulcers. Nothing they gave me did much.
I would never rely on MDs for the healing my foot ulcer. More specifically - even if the MDs at the VA were free to me - I would never rely on them for the healing of my foot ulcer, as their expertise on foot ulcers is pretty much limited to the dressing and re-dressing of that open wound.
> I have tried wheat grass and colloidal silver cream wrapped in saran wrap, which has been the only thing that has made any difference at all. In fact, at one point the sores were almost gone. Then I had a problem finding the wheat grass. Do you have any suggestions on anything else I could possibly try?
Supplements are nice to have. However, what really counts is your lifestyle, the foods you eat, the drinks you drink, the drugs you take, and or any long-term health issues you might have. Please tell me about your lifestyle and health issues! Example: Give me a list of foods, drinks, drugs and smokes you have in a typical day! How many grams of complete PROTEINS do you have in a typical day? What is your WEIGHT? Diabetics, for example, if they get injured, often get leg ulcers that never heal. Others, too, with long histories of poor nutrition and lousy lifestyle choices, often get leg ulcers that never heal, if they get injured.
I hope this will help!
I would be slathering that with Manuka Honey! I would then cover, but re-check it every few hours. If the area is dry, put more Manuka on it. I have found that wounds like that will "drink" how much honey it needs. It is worth a try, certainly. Best of luck.
Oh, and soak in Colloidal Silver, whenever you can, a few times a day. Or even a soaking wet cotton round over the area for 20 mins at a time will really help, too. Colloidal Silver could probably heal that all by itself, but Manuka is topically healing, and I would be drinking the Colloidal Silver. That sore would be under powerful attack two ways, and stands little chance of staying around. Please keep us updated.
As for brand and strength of the Manuka Honey and Colloidal Silver, get what you can comfortably afford. They're both amazing, even at their cheapest.
I read an article about this sugar cure for wounds back in 1985 from a woman who was trying to heal her grandmother's bedsores. The earliest mention of sugar for wound healing that could be found in the medical literature was during World War I in the Journal of the American Medical Association (Sept. 4,1915). This treatment persisted as an old wives' tale until the mid 1970s when Richard Knutson, MD, began using sugar on hard-to-treat wounds (Southern Medical Journal, Nov. 1981).
His formula involved mixing 4 pounds of table sugar with 1 pound of Betadine (iodine) antiseptic ointment (know that you're not allergic to betadine) and 6.5 ounces of Betadine solution in a double boiler over low heat. He applied the mixture to a depth of one-fourth inch, changing the dressing and cleaning the wound daily. He treated over 5,000 patients over 15 years. Sugardine is simply a paste of granulated white sugar and betadine solution mixed to a toothpaste or peanut butter consistency, and it is a remarkably safe and effective wound dressing. Granulated white sugar heals wounds. Sugar has been used in Egypt and many other Middle Eastern countries for generations as a safe way to treat cuts and in some cases burns. Sugar draws water from the wound into a dressing accelerating the healing process, which is prescribed in African folk medicine.
The sugar kills bacteria through osmotic action, and attracts the body's "clean-up crew" of macrophages and other infection-fighting elements to the wound site, thus promoting rapid cleansing and healing of the wound. Ingredients for Sugardine: * Table Sugar * 10% povidone iodine (or the more expensive betadine)
* Mix one part 10% povidone iodine to two parts white sugar.
Adding more or less sugar makes it the consistency of thick honey or peanut butter. Put the sugardine in a container with a tight fitting lid. The mixture will need stirring now and then but it will never go bad. It is my understanding that with a large open wound you pack it with sugardine and then bandage it. Sugardyne can be safely applied to the wound without fear of any bleeding once clots have been given adequate time to form–usually 1 ½ to 2 days. A copious amount (¼ to ½ inch thick layer) of Sugardyne is applied to cover or fill the wound and then covered with dry gauze. Deeper wounds are packed full of Sugardyne to the brim. Dressings are changed once daily. Dressing changes continue until the wound if fully healed. As a rule, no skin graft will be required. Skin will automatically cover the granulation tissue (“proud flesh”) that fills the defect, completely.
This is a long journey to healing but try applying several times a day 10% povidine. It's difficult to improve blood circulation in this area and wheatgrass is not effective.
Look into these:
No: tea, coffee, soda, vinegar, unbuffered ascorbic acid, smoking
Heavy metal detox: Cilantro, garlic, onion, turmeric, lemons, things that detox metals like arsenic, etc., colon cleanse like senna, magnesium sulfate, oxygenated magnesium (OxyPowder), melatonin, parsley
Varicose vein remedies: Horsechestnut, butchers broom, yarrow, natural vit E virgin coconut oil/milk/cream (not those big cartons in the case by the milk, the small carton by the asian foods), raw whole lemons not vit c tablets, alkaline diet
Improve circulation: Garlic, onion, turmeric, things that increase circulation, niacinamide, magnesium
Kill infection: warm water with fresh crushed garlic - magnesium sulfate - maybe borax - baking soda - footsoak, goldenseal, comfrey
Keep it clean: fresh aloe gel topically, possibly castor oil (apply to bandage and lay over wound), betadine (apply with spray bottle)
Those are some things to consider/educate yourself about. Niacinamide tablets, and garlic and onion powder (maybe with a few spoonfuls of tahini each day - for example in a curry) and aloe gel and/or betadine topically are what I would do first were I in your position with the few facts you provided. I'm not a doctor, this is just from what I've read.
There is a gov study that showed that eating garlic detoxes arsenic from the body. It described the effects of arsenic poisoning which appeared strikingly similar to diabetes/heart disease.
Cumin, Baking Soda, Coconut Oil
Is it cumin as in the Middle Eastern spice or black cumin as in Nigella seeds or black seed?
The silver alone should work too. Someone here uses Silvaderm (or some name like that) from the pharmacy on such ulcers (diabetic) and it does help a lot.
Hi my Dr. at the VA diagnosed me with foot ulcers. Nothing they gave me did much. I have tried wheat grass and colloidal silver cream wrapped in saran wrap which has been the only thing that has made any difference at all. In fact, at one point the sores were almost gone. Then I had a problem finding the wheat grass. Do you have any suggestions on anything else I could possibly try? Thanks so much.
I sensed she used charcoal externally on her leg ulcer. However, I have used charcoal internally many times. It is great for relieving gas, indigestion and food poisoning.
Activated Charcoal, Tamanu Oil
Does anyone know if pbird from 2013 ingested the charcoal or applied it externally for the leg ulcer?
Raw honey (just fine) or manuka (with manuka antibacterial? flowers in it) honey. The manuka is crazy expensive. Know that raw honey alone is antibacterial and I think antiviral too.
Why not get them injected which closes off the vein and let it cure itself?
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.
Chronic Leg Ulcer
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.
Why will no one go to a surgeon and get the vein that is wrong injected as the vein up further in the leg is leaking? Also, did anyone hear of the white horn for circulation as it is very good with the horse chestnut?
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.
Hello Fellow Sufferers,
My senior Partner (She who must be obeyed) suffered from a leg ulcer for the very first time in her life recently. These things are really serious and cause extreme, debilitating pain. She is not diabetic and thinks that "something" bit her whilst working outside the house and standing on the decking.
There is a narrow gap between the top of a concrete platform and the underside of the wooden decking that has gaps between the boards. We know that some "critters" "lurk" down there, such as cockroaches and skinks (a very small native lizard) but I am wondering if one or more white-tailed spiders may have found their way there. These things are a recent Aussie import unfortunately, and are poisonous. Some people also experience additional complications after being bitten such as narc.... (whatever that flesh-eating bacteria is called?).
So... SWMBO told me that she felt this painful bite and then it quickly subsided and nothing much happened until many days later when the bite site became red and inflamed and the pain started. Then the ulcer appeared.
She was in a lot of bother and strife and attended the doctor's surgery. They prescribed an application of Mupirocin (Bactroban) as well as a Silver covering (Hydrofilm).
This was to be covered with a sterile pad and then covered again with a bandage, which she was told to keep on and DRY for four days, at which time she should change the dressing and repeat.
This worked (after a loong time)!!
I see other posters have also sung the praises of SILVER, so there you go.
Cheers from Down Under
Harvey in Winnepeg: Please explain exactly what healed your leg ulcers...was it the application of Vitamin E oil only? Also, how often did you apply the oil?
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!
Colloidal Silver, Potassium Permanganate
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 would try a salve with comfrey in it. It helps cells to regenerate. It even helps with old scars. I use comfrey all the time at my house!

HI U HARVEY,,,,,,,,,,,,
my experience is that wounds that do not heal are due to lack of oxygen or circulation. You can do a Hydrogen Peroxide IV or to start...... spread ozonated oil on the wound. Go with the best first and that is the IV.
I had leg ulcers but now healed. Healing left me with three new scars with new skin a white color, like baby skin. No problem, very happy I healed. But skin around some of the area on my ankle is discolored and looks like a heavy tan….I still put lotions to moisturize the area.
When healing, I put on a lot of Vitamin E oil which I have had tremendous success over the years with several scars….that disappeared. I am going to use Vitamin E oil again. I have been using 100% aloe vera oil lately. I am hoping the discoloring will fade in time. Any suggestions? will be much appreciated….Harv
Julia Schopick, in her book “Honest Medicine, ” wrote a section on Silverlon, which she used to heal her husband's head after repeated surgeries. I have seen it for sale on Amazon, as well as other places.
What kind of Silver Pads did you purchase? I have the same problem with my left foot. Many nights without sleep and tons of pain.
Cumin, Baking Soda, Coconut Oil
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!!!
I have heard that in Europe and the UK they use these nuts for ulcers but I have never tried them, having tried heaps of other things.
I've had leg ulcers now for nearly 4 years and at times I despair that I ever will be healed...
Whilst up to about 6 months ago fruit was still ok to eat with the exception of melons, grapes, grapefruit, and berries..
Now apples are the only fruit I can eat.I have been off sugar for about the same time too and expected to see an improvement in my legs but have instead now noticed a bad biofilm and extensive pain as a new infection takes over. It is called Pastuerella Mitocida, supposedly caused by feline animal bites (?) I have 3 very elderly gentle cats who have lived outside for 4 yrs. That is the limit of my contact with cats! When I got my first ulcer in 2013, I developed an allergic reaction to their fur so I certainly wouldn't let them touch me.
Anyway I may have some HC tea somewhere which I will start drinking and will keep you posted.
With the nuts themselves, how do you boil them?
HI U MI,,,,,,,,, diabetic ulcers can lead to amputation and messin with home cures usually don't work. What does work is a H2O2 IV or cup the area using ozone. You will have to find a Integrative Doctor for this because it is not approved by the FDA.
If you insist on trying a home remedy, then I would try ozonated olive oil. The wound won't heal because of the lack of oxygen via your blood. Your question is why my integrative doctor left his Thoracic Practice because he got tired of cutting off arms and legs when they could be healed using integrative measures.
I wish you well. ====ORH=====
Post from 2008 - does anyone know the ratio of water to salt Omar used? Also, any special kind of honey? Thanks.
Didn't this sugar burn? Like the honey from the doctor stung like a son of a bees wax.it was the medi honey, but it stung so much I had to quit it.
Silverlon can be purchased on Amazon in various sizes:
Did anyone get info on what Dina meant about the "silver pads"'?
Thanks Sue, that indeed was helpful. My ulcer is tiny upon my right foot heel. It's dried now, still hurts a wee bit.
Do it really work...I suffer with small blisters on my legs, some has turn into sores.
How do u put it on? Does it burn? Does it heal the wound?
Raw Food Diet for Leg Sores
Hydrogen Peroxide, Coconut Oil, Cayenne
When you put the peroxide on the ulcer wound, then you do the mix of the oil and cayenne pepper, massage the leg, do you put something else on the wound and cover for during the day when you are working? Can you please tell me What I need to do and get to heal my wound. Thank you.
My podiatrist recommended Sugar with triple antibiotic paste mix for the stubborn Diabetic ulcer on my foot, and it healed it within a month. It's an inexpensive way to heal a stubborn wound.
Comments on leg ulcers - they are heart breaking, and the hospitals don't provide an array of usable medicine.
I use colloidal silver, internal and external as it was one of the first antibiotics used for burn patients in the US. It worked. I cleaned all sores, and those emerging. Fine spray the leg daily.
Colloidal Silver, Serrapeptase
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.
Hydrogen Peroxide, Coconut Oil, Cayenne
Does this also help with the swelling of the leg and foot?
Here is the link to Silverlon. You can read more about it in Julia Schopick's book, "Honest Medicine." Her husband's doctors had been trying to heal his head from repeated brain surgeries for over 8 months without success, and she found out about Silverlon and brought some into the hospital for him. He skin was healed over night. Best wishes. http://www.silverlon.com/silverlon-us
hey Dianne I have leg ulcers. I am a diabetic and its been going on for a year. Where can I buy the siver pads at to help heal my leg ulcers. I have tried everything ointments antibiotics, nothing is helping.
I suffer from diabetic foot ulcer on my big toe from last 1 year and it's not healing. I am in pain and lots of burning. Pls let me know about tamanu oil and how to use it. Or any other treatment. Thanks.
HI U BARRY, , , , , , , , thank you for this information. Met a man in our chelation group that had the same situation and 3 Hydrogen Peroxide IV's avoided the amputation of his leg. Pocket Ozone will work also. The wound just needs oxygen in any way it can get it. Blood flow is paramount and the lowly supplement, L- Arginine will do that. It's the poor man's Viagra. I will say no more as my wife reads my posts.
Our allopathic doctors will change to natural remedies in time, but not in my time.
I had a leg ulcer about the size of a half dollar with a deep crader that I been battling a year. The doctors in the US could do nothing, but my wife and I started eating about 4 horse chestnuts a day, and within a month it cleared up. If you look online it says they are hazardous, but if you cook them they are edible. Now you can buy them in a powder form, and add to juice, or use creams on your legs with horse chestnuts. We found out Europe uses them for ulcers, venous disease, varicose veins, and Hemorrhoid.

My aloe is plain green. I think that eating a spice also plays significant role in rebuilding collagen damaged by corticosteroids. I've also read some posts written by people suffering from corticosteroid induced skin atrophy about applying yoghurt and avocado on these sensitive skin areas but I haven't tried it yet.
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.
Please remember folks that IF you use Colloidal Silver in any form other than with water, it will deteriorate in 10 days to 2 weeks. That being said, I will never forget how well silver nitrate salve worked on my mother's near gangrene leg; the hole, the sore was brown all around.
Activated Charcoal, Tamanu Oil
I want to help several patients with ulcers in our dialysis unit. Where do you purchase tamanu oil are there any side effects and how long did it take for relief and healing. Thanks for your help. Louan
Hydrogen Peroxide and Testosterone
HI U GOD FEARING PEOPLE DOIN, , , , , , , , , , ,
Got diabetes myself and know this problem is coming one of these days . I know personally that Hydrogen Peroxide IV has cured this problem for several people in my chelation group.
One of my medical news letters had another remedy. This doctor healed his dad's leg ulcer by rubbing natural testosterone directly into the wound. He also gave him injectable testosterone . His stage 4 ulcer , which went to the bone, was healed in 6 weeks. I have no clue.
Was I a nice person this time or not?
======OLE ROBERT HENRY======
People apply Tamanu Oil straight to wounds. I used it on my daughter this week for a skin irritation and the results were pretty impressive. It was my first experience with it.
Tamanu is native to Malaysia, so you should be able to find it where you live, but it may be called something else. This website has some information and includes some alternate names.
Activated charcoal is also really good for diabetic leg ulcers. Here are some encouraging stories.
Both of these remedies could be used together.
Wounds will heal best if you are also getting plenty of water, have a nutritious diet, and your body is eliminating regularly. If you would be able to add fresh vegetable juice, like carrot, to your diet, that would be very helpful.
I hope you are able to get your ulcers healed soon!
~Mama to Many~
Greetings, I am in my 60's, I have this Ulcer wounds above the ankles and below the ankles on both my legs for many years now. Can you please suggest how the use of Tamanu oil help to heal this type of wounds. Where can one get this oil. Thank you for your help. Best regards. Nara
