Frequent Leg or Foot Sores and Infections

If you have been experiencing frequent sores on your legs or feet that do not heal easily, you may have an underlying condition. These sores can often be mistaken for diabetes, but they can also be a sign of an artery or vein disease. The experts at Texas Vein & Wellness Institute can help provide answers and treatment options to get you on the road to recovery.

What Can Cause Frequent Sores and Infections on Legs or Feet?

You can have frequent sores and infections on your legs or feet due to poor blood circulation, which becomes slower as we age. These symptoms can also be due to a blockage that limits blood flow in order to heal the sores. 

There can be several causes for sores and infections on your legs, but if they are frequent, it can be a sign of an artery or vein disease, such as:

  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD): PAD refers to plaque buildup in your arteries, decreasing blood flow to the legs. Frequent sores characterize this arterial disease, as well as weak or numb limbs, slow hair and toenail growth and a constant sensation of pins and needles.
  • Varicose veins: Varicose veins occur when a damaged vein causes blood to pool in the legs instead of continuing to circulate back to the heart. By stopping the flow and healing process, you may experience frequent sores during the later stages of this condition.
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT): DVT is when a blood clot forms in the deep veins in the legs. These blood clots are another way that blood circulation can decrease.
