In brief: Compression therapy

Weeping is a very common problem with patients that have leg ulcers.
The goal is to get the ulcer to heal. Compression therapy and aggressive wound care is the key. Once the ulcer heals however the compression therapy has to continue to prevent swelling of the legs. Otherwise the ulcer will simply come back.

In brief: New skin

The reason your ulcers weep is that your skin is damaged.
Normally when the skin is intact it keeps your body fluids contained. If your doctor has determined it is appropriate to treat your legs with compression therapy then this can help your ulcers heal.
