I have been told its caused by excess water staying in my leg and literally forming lumps. When the legs get damaged, by washing/bathing, I have such sensitive skin, it causes water to run down my legs. I have to tie towels/tea towels around my ankles to hold the water, (I must look SOO sexy hahaha) At the moment I have a large ulcer about 2 inches long, which repeatedly opens up. This is six, yes, six years old now, dressings cost me a fortune, we paid over £30 for dressings that least me a couple of weeks.
