Leg ulceration is a debilitating condition which compromises the quality of life of the sufferer, owing to factors such as pain, exudate, odour and social isolation. As nurses, much of the daily care provided for such patients focuses on the provision of wound care; often failing to fully address the wide ranging effects that the ulceration is having on the life of the sufferer. This article reviews the quantitative studies that have explored the health-related quality of life of patients with chronic venous leg ulceration and presents a synthesis of their findings.
Google skin clinics near ur area..if u are from south africa like me u can go to Diva Slimming Aesthetics in Sunninghill, they do removal of steetchmarks. Well stretchmarks wont completely go away but atleast they can fade after a few treatments. Bio oil and other stretchmark creams alone, wont help with severe stretchmarks u need laser treatments to get them removed. They charge R1200 for 3 sessions in 1 area for removal of stretchmarks. Bio oil and other creams will only help abit I guess…Steroid creams like epiderm, bethnovate, movate, g&g, diproson, all creams that come with tubes all contain steroids…steroids cause stretchmarks in the long run…hydroquinine products can only be used for a short while if u use hydroquinone for too long, it makes dark patches on ur forehead called ochronosis. Ladies u must google information first for anything u want to do or anything the u!
