What is an Ulcer?

An ulcer is a sore that develops on the skin or mucous membranes. Ulcers can occur in various parts of the body, including the stomach (peptic ulcer) and the legs (venous leg ulcer). Ulcers can be caused by numerous factors, including infection, injury, and certain medical conditions. Symptoms of an ulcer can include pain, redness, and discharge. Ulcers can be treated with medication, wound care, and, in some cases, surgery.
