There are several types of bandaging treatment that are used for treating the leg ulcers and they could be made from 2, 3 and even 4 distinct layers. The application of the leg compression bandage is a difficult and crucial procedure and therefore, it must be conducted by a nurse or a general physician. It is necessary to change the compression leg wraps once in a week while changing the dressing. When the compression leg wraps are first applied on the affected area, it would be quite painful and you should have a painkiller as prescribed by your general physician. The pain is expected to subside once the ulcer starts healing and this may take over a week. It is important to keep wearing the leg compression bandage as recommended by the general physician and in case you face any difficulty, it is best to consult the experts instead of trying to do anything about it yourself. If you feel that your compression bandage has become very tight and it is becoming difficult to wear it at night, then you may get up for a short walk to see if it is helpful. But you may have to get it removed by an expert if you feel severe pain in the front area of the ankle or at the top of the foot and if your toes become swollen and bluish. When the bandage is removed, it is crucial to keep the leg elevated upwards to reduce the swelling and discomfort.
