In brief: Calciphylaxis

There are two components: first, your renal doctor will need to look into correctable biochemical abnormalities to see if there is something to be corrected like calcium, phosphate, and parathyroid hormone levels; second, the wounds will need careful treatment in a wound center by a physician that is willing to work with you over long term.

In brief: No cure, can treat

Calciphylaxis occurs in long term kidney failure as the name suggests it involves abnormal calcium and phosphorus metabolism .
The associated wounds were once considered unhealable but that doesn't have to be the case. A good wound specialist using very cautious and gentle wound techniques can treat this type of wound.
