Risk factors can increase the likelihood of developing skin ulcers. Some of these include but are not limited to;
- Pregnancy: During pregnancy, hormonal changes and increased blood volume may cause leg vein problems.
- Cigarette smoking: Tobacco smoke hardens your arteries and disrupts proper blood flow. Limited mobility: Being bedridden, paralyzed, or using a wheelchair puts your skin under constant pressure. Leg injuries and arthritis can limit your movement.
- Increasing age: Age is linked to atherosclerosis and venous insufficiency.
- High blood pressure: Hypertension, or high blood pressure, damages the arteries and disrupts blood flow.
- High blood cholesterol: High cholesterol increases narrowing and oxidative stress in the arteries, which disrupts blood flow.
- Diabetes: Ulcers form due to a combination of factors, such as lack of feeling in the foot, poor circulation, foot deformities, irritation (such as friction or pressure), and trauma, as well as duration of diabetes.
- Obesity: Obesity raises your risk for diabetes, atherosclerosis, and increased pressure in your leg veins.
- History of blood clots: If you’re prone to blood clots, you’re more likely to have blood flow issues.
