Pyoderma Gangrenosum Treatment and Diagnosis
About Pyoderma Gangrenosum
Pyoderma Gangrenosum is a rare, non-contagious skin condition that results in the development of large, painful sores on your skin, typically on your legs. In the dermatology world, it is classified under the “neutrophilic dermatoses” umbrella of diseases, as are Sweet syndrome and Peristomal pyoderma.
It's not certain what causes the painful symptoms of Pyoderma Gangrenosum, but it appears to be a disorder of the immune system. People who have specific underlying conditions, like inflammatory bowel disease or rheumatoid arthritis, are at higher risk of Pyoderma Gangrenosum. It may also be associated with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
With each stage to which a pyoderma gangrenosum wound progresses, skin becomes more and more prone to infection. Moist wounds and dead tissue create a breeding ground for bacteria. Infection poses one of the greatest delays in healing and is one of the worst complications. Preventing infection is a key step to healing wounds, sores and ulcers. When bacteria spread under the skin and into the soft tissues, the body reacts by creating inflammation.
CAUSES OF PYODERMA GANGRENOSUM
Doctors and dermatologists aren’t exactly sure what causes Pyoderma Gangrenosum. The current theory is that Pyoderma Gangrenosum is some sort of disorder of the immune system.
Although medical experts are not sure what causes Pyoderma Gangrenosum, there are definitely certain clinical risk factors that seem to increase one’s likeliness of contracting the disease.
These risk factors include:
- Age - Although Pyoderma Gangrenosum can appear in anyone at any age, it seems that the condition is more common in patients between the ages of 40 and 50.
- Sex - Female patients are slightly more likely to develop Pyoderma Gangrenosum than male patients.
- Digestive tract diseases - Patients with Inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, or Crohn’s disease are more likely to develop Pyoderma Gangrenosum.
- Rheumatoid arthritis - This disease can also increase a patient's chance of developing Pyoderma Gangrenosum.
- Cancer - Patients with blood cancer experience a higher likelihood of developing Pyoderma Gangrenosum.
Patients who experience clinical Pyoderma Gangrenosum usually first experience small, red bumps on their skin. These bumps may look like a bug bite. After a couple of days, the bump will develop into a large, open sore. Patients say that these sores are painful.
Patients usually develop these sores on their legs but it is possible for them to develop anywhere on the body. Pyoderma Gangrenosum sores appear fairly frequently around old surgical scars.
It’s also possible that if you have multiple Pyoderma Gangrenosum sores near one another that they’ll combine into one, large sore.
Because of the pain and possible complications associated with Pyoderma Gangrenosum sores, it’s highly recommended that you seek clinical treatment immediately upon noticing these symptoms.
TREATMENT OF PYODERMA GANGRENOSUM
After a diagnosis with pyoderma gangrenosum, there are a number of pyoderma gangrenosum treatment options. The patient may choose to use corticosteroids as a form of treatment. They are a common treatment option and can be effective, but long-term use can cause serious side effects and even bone loss. Other pyoderma gangrenosum treatment options are generally geared toward the immune system, and specifically at suppressing it. If you are experiencing severe pain, using pain medications could be beneficial.
To speed up wound healing and prevent infection, you need a medical grade treatment. Also, it is important to manage skin inflammation throughout the healing process. Inflamed skin is highly fragile and can easily be at risk for secondary infection without proper treatment. Above all, monitor daily progress of the skin to watch for any negative changes so that you can respond quickly.

AIDS DAMAGED SKIN AND PREVENTS SCARRING
Any time the skin is damaged, there is a potential for scarring or permanent blemish. EMUAID® stimulates blood flow to rapidly promote the growth of new healthy skin cells and prevent scar tissue from forming. This action, known as “micro-circulation,” speeds the delivery of new skin cells and helps to speed tissue regeneration. Overall, this enables your skin to heal more quickly, and dramatically lowers your risk of healing complications such as infection or scarring.
