Curious how many of you get small sores ulcers on the skin not mucous...
There's a medicine over the counter they call honey med it clears them up
is it manuka honey based?
I'm not sure
I got a tiny one behind my left ear this year. Lasted 3 months despite a variety of treatments. Only sealed up after doc stitched it, after biopsy. Biopsy results said it was not Vasculitis. But I had had a similar issue behind that same ear two other times within the past 3-4 years. This time it would not go away.
These need to be carefully tended. If they are deep, they need packing. They should be checked frequently
There's a product called Medihoney. I used it on a sore, and it healed it quickly. You can get it online. It works even better than colloidal silver (which most hospitals use on pressure sores).
Mine aren't deep. Just surface level, and less than 1/4 inch in diameter, some WAY less in diameter than that. But surface level, like someone would get form scratching a place that itches and then it starts bleeding...like that...only i dont scratch them for them to start bleeding.
Glad for this post, I'm going to try that honey med. I tried ozoned olive oil but it smells horrible. Kinda worked until I couldn't take the smell any longer.
Yes vasculitic ulcers last 4-5 years non healing . This pic was a while ago but still not healed .
I have used the honey and it made no difference the only thing we have had any success with is a simple sterile wound gel and an antibacterial dressing and no adhesives any where near them . They are from the vasculitis so generally wont heal until vasculitis is controlled . Humira helped a small amount but im on rituxan now to try and stall it . These ulcers are different from ither ulcers as they are uncharacteristically painful which many ulcers arent . Biopsies of the ulcer should identify if it is vasculitis .
do they ever look just like a red raised sore that isnt open/ulcerated? Most of mine are scabbed over tht never quite heals (or takes a long time to) but one popped up under my right eye, like by my cheekbone...its red, it hurts, it's not a zit, but its not scabbed or open. Just red and sore. I was sneezing up a storm on Thursday with an unexplained fever and nausea, and then Fridya all of that was gone but all these new sores popped up. *sigh*. Hopefully I should be getting tested soon. Think I found a doctor and got that all sorted.
