I've been seeing alot of my pts coming in with this lately. They have discolored shins/ feet, skin is dry and very scaly and almost looks/ feels like a tree trunk, sometimes there is drainge and other times not. Most of the pts have been on an antiboitic too. For the most part we are putting steriod creams on the legs bid.
What are other treatments/ nursing measures to take? I was trying to look into this and call the doc on this one pt because she had two types of steriod creams ordered...clobesterol? and TAC. use both together or one?
vascular browning=venous dz
I know what you mean-totally looks like their legs could pop!
