I Agree That Most Ulcers, Regardless Of How Severe Leave A Scar. Laser Helps Heal Them, But Can Also Leave A Scar. We Had A Really Stubborn Ulceration For 4 Months. Seemed Like Everytime We Got It To Dry Up, Someone Would Rub Her Arm, Or The Shirt Would Pull The Scab Off And It Would Bust Open Again. She Was In Such Pain, That We Had To Do Something Different. She Was Put On Steroids And It Healed Within 4 Weeks Of Use Because It Was No Longer Growing At A Rapid Rate Or Shrinking At A Rapid Rate. We Opted For Laser When The Second Ulceration Came Up, And The Dr Gave Us A Liticain Ointment To Numb The Area So We Could Keep Antibiotics On It Without It Hurting Her. Best Thing Ever!!!!! Check With Your Dr To See If They Can Get You Some! Laser Did Wonders, The Ulceration Healed Within A Week!
