Depending on the amount of exposure to the sun, the skin becomes red, painful and swollen one hour to one day after exposure.

Chronic ulcerative woundsChronic ulcerative wounds occur due to a variety of underlying conditions. These include leg ulcers which are due to circulation disorders in the lower leg; diabetic ulcers which are due to decreased circulation or damage to the nerves in the foot; pressure ulcers resulting from lack of blood flow and irritation to the skin due to prolonged pressure on bony areas in people who are restricted in movement.For sufferers of chronic ulcerative wounds, SOLUGEL™ Wound Care Gel helps provide a moist wound healing environment. This environment enhances cell survival and is particularly beneficial in helping the body to eliminate dead tissue which is a necessary part of the healing process for this type of wound.
