Increase exercise by a simple, brisk 20 min. walk once or twice a day and push off with the balls of the feet with each step...heel, roll up to the ball, push until those calf muscles are flexing with each step. Increase fluid, Vit. C and folic acid intake.
That's all about as simple as you can make it and all VERY effective. Let air get to the area each evening, elevate the foot to increase venous return to the heart. Keep doing the exercise and water even after the ulcer has healed to prevent further incidence of same.
