In brief: See a vein specialis
Leg ulcers are often caused by chronic venous insufficiency which is a problem that causes to much pressure to be in the veins near the skin.
A venous specialist can diagnose and treat this condition. Our cure rate with venous ulcers is 97%.

In brief: Ulcers
It depends on the cause Evaluation to determine the cause is crucial to make a treatment plan Once the cause is identified leg elevation is very helpful as part of the healing process this will reduce inflammation and swelling

In brief: What is the cause?
There is no real way to answer this question without a better history.
It all depends on the etiology of the ulcer and the reason that it is slow to heal. Is it a venous stasis ulcer, arterial insufficiency, pressure related, or trauma that became infected. More information will allow anyone to provide you a better understanding of this problem.
