Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a rare and serious skin disease in which a painful nodule or pustule breaks down to form a progressively enlarging ulcer. The name relates to the appearance of the ulcers, which have a purulent surface ('pyoderma') and a blue-black edge ('gangrenosum'). However, there is neither infection nor gangrene involved.
HOW IS PYODERMA GANGRENOSUM DIAGNOSED?
A general physician would observe your symptoms and also do a scan to check your ulcers. If in doubt of tumours, tissue tests can also be done.
HOW IS PYODERMA GANGRENOSUM TREATED?
Treatment for Pyoderma Gangrenosum depends on what type you are suffering from. Usually doctors prefer using a stepwise approach here that includes medicines like corticosteroids and ciclosporin. Other kinds of immunosuppressive agents are also used here.
